There are some really great people, the work environment is collaborative and friendly, management was more than competent, the Hercules campus is really a pleasant place.

Advice to Management

They had a clear view of goals for the future.

    Pros

    Company very diversified and stable. Very good growth and potential for the future. Company is very conservative and offers a reasonable incentive bonus plan for middle and top management, much more lucative for top management. Good oppportunities for travel as Bio-Rad has locations all around the world. I.T. Management appears to be flexible regarding time off. Very good core base of employees at all levels, very knowledgeable, and for the most part, very good to work with.

    Cons

    Lack of career development opportunities, lack of opportunities for advancement even though top management indicates it is dedicated from hiring from within. Bio-Rad management trying to address these shortfalls, but no real progress in the past few years. Bio-Rad management tends to favor talent from the outside, before recognizing talent from within.

    Advice to Management

    Management appears to be listening to it's workforce, however, change is too slow in coming. The workplace needs to be more equitable for Bio-Rad veterans as well as for new talent coming in the door. Bio-Rad needs to do a better job of career planning and development for it's employees, particularly those that have been with the company over 5 years.
