    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    They offer fair pay, and Interesting projects. There are many great people, and Quidel enjoys a solid reputation in the industry. If you are coming from R and D, and woud like to learn how a clinical diagnostics firm is run, they put a priority on getting new employees up to speed on regulatory issues.

    Cons

    Job security and lack of advancement may be an issue in some departments. Many companies in the biotech and diagnostics industry are having to re-assess priorities and direction as the corporate landscape changes. Quidel is no exception. As usual, some projects and divisions are seen as having growth potential. These are given priority when it comes to R and D and marketing expenditures. Other product lines and divisions are used to generate quick money with little emphasis on the future.

    Advice to Management

    If a division or product line does not fit well with the current business model, it might be better for all involved to sell it off, rather than let it die.

    I worked at Quidel full-time

    Pros

    The people. Overall work culture (good work/life balance). Good all-inclusive team building activities. All skill levels needed in many different aspects of the company.

    Cons

    Being owned by a company located in San Diego, California. Very little feeling of being considered a valuable asset to the overall company goals.

    Advice to Management

    The R&D environment in Athens is somewhat disconnected from everything else and could use better integration with the operations in Athens as well as globally.
