I worked at VWR full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Many locations worldwide, many different types of jobs

Cons

Below average pay and benefits, poor management. Difficult to get HR support, payroll support etc. IT call center is outsourced offshore, much to the dismay of all. Too many one off, non integrated applications. Training was non existent.

Advice to Management

Get out to your remote locations and open your eyes.

    I worked at VWR full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The job was convenient, in my career field and close to my home. Initially appeared to have the support of management.

    Cons

    Soon after beginning to work there, I realized that the support from upper management was minimal and we were just left in a situation that was destined to go no where.

    Advice to Management

    Be supportive of remote employees
