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

    Pros

    Great people. Very good, supportive relationships. Level-headed organization overall. They do not get angry and emotional. The european influence keeps them very practical and even-tempered.

    Cons

    High pressure, low pay scale. At times the pressure is unhealthy. Reluctant to hire new staff even when the work load clearly demands it. This puts an unnecessary burden on performers to pick up the weight. They are pushed until they burn out or leave, or both. On the other hand, low performers coast along without discipline or intervention. This is the most comment problem.

    Advice to Management

    Focus. Focus. Focus. The company is very unfocused. It tries to do everything, so it does nothing well. Then it tries to do even more to catch up.

    Unattainable growth goals

    Advice to Management

    Eurofins could be a great company to work for however, it simply isn't and it's due to lack of organization, leadership, competitive pay, average benefits. Very unfortunate.

    Pros

    The work is interesting and the people I work with are great for the most part. It is varied enough to keep the job interesting.

    Cons

    Not particularly flexible with hours, only give lieu time for weekend work so any weekday overtime is not paid. Generally the work load is quite high so it's a struggle to fit it all in at times. Pay isn't great and equipment could be improved.
