I worked at Beckman Coulter full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Beckman Coulter at least at the Chaska, Minnesota site is an excellent place to start or continue a career. The company is very focused on staff development, demonstrating the knowledge that well motivated staff is mission critical.

Cons

There has been times of unfortunate "inbreeding" by longer term middle management at various sites, that was not properly identified and addressed by upper management. This did damaged product development and subsequent profitability. This type of situation can happen anywhere. The recent acquisition by Danaher is a very positive development.

Advice to Management

Continue to monitor actual versus reported activities looking for reporting with too much polish. The overall company is well worth the extra effort.

    I worked at Beckman Coulter full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The engineers and scientists are generally exceptionally smart. Challenging projects. Product lines that had the means to do good in the world, rather than just make money for the company.

    Cons

    Middle and upper management often clueless, and communication up and down the management chain may be...modified...to suit the audience. Pay and benefits not on par with the talent of the individuals doing the work: "target" for pay is 90% of "market average".

    Advice to Management

    Get better at recognizing the people who do the work that pays your salary: the people who are developing the company's products.

    I have been working at Beckman Coulter full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Except for few honest real good technical people and neat product, nothing is great there
    They even ship instruments with so many defects and question their quality management for hurrying things , Support individuals for mocking other employee, No employee work ethics...dont know what else..Just hire people who can work, work and hire contractors as full time employee who dont have right employee behavior..

    Cons

    Bad attitude, zero collaboration, no engagement, high stressful work and also work for which you havent been hired for..dirty jobs, severe major politics where HR plays pivotal role to save their "Loud mouth attitude" people, unrecognized talent...Senior management talks big stuff "Integration, compliance, " but nothing in action, No vision.....Please dont join...Horrible company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest your politics and tactics at some other joint. Dont play with talented and skilled employees and sell your sales pitch to some of your unique product..
