I have been working at Bio-Rad Laboratories full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Bio-rad is a great place to work. The company's philosophy is family oriented and therefore makes for a lot of care for its people in the benefits and salary that it gives.

Cons

Bio-rad is a slow growing company which makes for a stable environment but also means that the budget can be tight for bonuses.

    I worked at Bio-Rad Laboratories full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The upside at Bio-Rad is definitely the stability and compensation. If you want, you can work there for most of your life, having 3-7 different positions. Bio-Rad loves to promote and hire from within. Plus, with the company continuously doing well, buying the stock options is a big bonus.

    Cons

    This is where you've got to fight your inner demons with Bio-Rad. If you like latest technologies, products that release to market quickly (less than a year), then Bio-Rad is not your place. You've got relax here and go with the flow. The culture is even depressingly behind in standards by recognizing empty seats and not recognizing performance. Plus, if you feel Bio-Rad is a career between careers, well, be careful. Your skills may fall way behind depending on your background.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to adapt to current trends, cultures, and listen to those who don't match your style.

    I worked at Bio-Rad Laboratories full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Insurance benefits for entire family, suburban locations, easy reverse commute, clean, comfortable offices, nice campus.

    Cons

    Inept management, penny pinching, cliquish , old school management, no flexibility . Not a happy environment, no gym, or perks. Top down management, no openness to innovation. Just work. I never worked anywhere where people complained about their jobs this much and yet didn't quit and find a better job.

    Advice to Management

    get some new blood in management, too many have been there too long and don't know how to do things better
