Pros

Good benefits. Many good people in non-management positions. Formerly a place where you could expect promotions from within.

Cons

The place is run by sound byte, and it's a personality contest. The only employees given respect are the sales people - of course, senior management have sales backgrounds. It is a gossip-rumor-mill at the most senior level where they act like teenagers, and talk badly about those not in the "in" crowd. Eppendorf is also very top heavy, they have many Managers and directors that do not have direct reports.

Advice to Management

Grow up and start leading. You are convinced you are doing this, but the place has poor morale for the most part, and now that you are beginning to enjoy laying people off, they are scared. Most people in your "in crowd" are just brown-nosing. Mr. Crowley, stop leading by the sound bytes you hear from others (DD) and take the time to figure things out for yourself.

    I loved the people I worked with.

    I worked at Eppendorf North America full-time

    Pros

    Excellent training and communication up and down the chain of command as well as being kept in the loop of product changes and updates from Eppendorf Germany.
    Quality of the personnel from in-house/customer service to field techs/engineers was outstanding.
    Support from Germany was very good and never felt out of touch with what was going on.

    Cons

    Poor IT support considering the amount of software/equipment that service personnel are using.
    Eppendorf NA is a sales organization first and foremost so service issues can take a back seat at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and taking care of your people.
