I worked at QIAGEN as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Coworkers were friendly and helpful, especially when I was tackling to the learning curve of not having worked in the industry before.

Cons

US division has been going through some restructuring, so there were times when people didn't know what others were responsible for. In my role, I wasn't given a lot of direction or training and was expected to just go.

    In-house cafeteria, good menu, clean, well-cooled in the summer.

    Management can be a little touch-and-go.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a streamlined focus, use clear goals when doling out assignments with clear future applications. Make employees feel like part of the solution.

    I have been working at QIAGEN full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    QIAGEN has a good brand name in the life science industry with good products that advance science and healthcare.

    Cons

    It is not a company that cares much about its employees and their development, this is exemplified in many instances. Essentially the company's philosophy is that you should be grateful to be work with them and not ask for things. There is no structured conversations about career development or personal growth, if employee initiates those conversations it is looked upon badly.
    Many senior managers are not people persons and essentially show no interest in developing their teams.

    Advice to Management

    Establish career and people development opportunities
    Be more selective in senior management of who are people leaders and who are not
