Pros

Information sharing good through town hall meetings
They are not pretentious or overbearing with a self-inflated value -- they are down-to-earth
They treat their employees well
They don't make tons of money but they try to give any benefits as possible as they can (insurance, etc)
They have a lean workforce (which can be a con if you want to move around within the company)
The leadership, I understand, don't take an exorbitant salary

Cons

Being a niche company, movement from one group to another can be difficult
If you work at Bio-Rad and want to go to another company, it is a difficult commute (to go for an interview, if you buy a house and need to go elsewhere, etc.)

Advice to Management

Don't change the culture you have established. People like it there. Don't fiddle with things if they aren't broken.
