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

Pros

Big company where you can hide among the thousands of people who do nothing but schedule conference calls and send e-mail.

Cons

Thousands of people who do nothing but schedule conference calls and send e-mails. Technology is way behind. Outsourced customer service, sales support, IT Support and everything else to India and it's not working. Negative environment. High pressure. Too complex of an environment to actually accomplish anything. Frustrating place to work on a daily basis.

Advice to Management

The direction and current culture is not sustainable and it's getting worse by the day.

    Pros

    5 star facility with perks like a gym and free fruit. Very nice people who are very helpful.

    HELP. Figure out how to run the business so the strategy doesn't change every half decade
