    Pros

    Great launch to another company or career.

    Cons

    Maintains a strain of insidious corruption and nepotism, borne out of the inept and dishonest will of a few. Some mid-level mgrs. are cognizant, as evident in some corps., however their primary concern is their own status.

    Advice to Management

    Mother and daughter should never be in the same department, let alone the same office. It creates a feudal system of mistrust and inequity.

    I have been working at Eurofins Scientific full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great way to get a foot in the door with experience. Great benefits for a single person. Great way to make friends. Pay is good for recent graduate.

    Cons

    Management usually doesn't set foot in the lab, so if unusual results happen, it is blamed on the employee most of the time.
    Management expects you to stay overtime at times. Work is sometimes put on your list last minute and the work is expected to be done.
    Favorites are picked all the time. You can tell the difference by how management speaks to each person.

    Advice to Management

    Have more faith in your Employees. Not everything is their fault.
    Divide the work evenly between all employees rather than having one person overwork themselves to death.
    If an employee is asking for help, listen to them.

    I have been working at Eurofins Scientific full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. I should have stayed at my old job. The benefits are awful and pricy. The pay is ok but lower than what employees at the actual company gets paid.

    Cons

    The staff is very unprofessional. My phone calls are never returned and my emails are ignored. If your are a professional scientist seek employment elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not claim to be a great staffing company when your job performance is sub par.
