I worked at IDEXX Laboratories full-time

Pros

Numerous benefits beyond medical/dental/401k, professional work environment

Cons

Salaries, advancement possibilities, management, adoption of new technology

Advice to Management

You need to promote merit and tenure advancement of current employees to senior positions.
You should look within the company for senior management.
The numbers of non-management to management employees are skewed too heavily towards the management side (at one point I was directly reporting to five different managers at once)
You need to accept the fact that you are in direct competition with Boston and Southern New England for talent and your salaries need to reflect this. Currently they are too low to attract top level talent away from biotech centers.

    I have been working at IDEXX Laboratories full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment.
    Nice buildings and grounds. Employees really seem to take ownership in our building.
    Personal Growth Leave
    GiVE - The global volunteer program

    Cons

    Our insurance is not great, but at least we have somthing
    IDEXX is going through some growing pains. We are still in a small company mindset and need to change our focus to move into the big company world we want to be in.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing a lot of the right things. Don't lose sight of them when you are trying to change and address the issues that do need to be fixed

    I have been working at IDEXX Laboratories full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are a slew of creative & highly technical jobs within IDEXX, with ample room for advancement. The company is successful, lending towards secure, long-term careers. And the sense of competitiveness and culture of innovation means that there's a good chance you can work on something fun and rewarding!

    Cons

    Performance expectations and resource constraints can make many departments within IDEXX stressful to work for or with (especially IT). The relatively limited talent pool of Southern Maine means that you'll also have to deal with the occasional weak link, forcing you to make up the slack or lower the quality of work produced.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on core products. While pushing for innovation, it's also important to allow for breathing room to improve current products. Beauty and polish are important, but often overlooked in the race to check-off the next feature.
