    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

    Pros

    Learn interesting things about chemistry, while getting experience as well.
    Some cool employees
    Decent benefits

    Cons

    Not the best pay.
    No acknowledgement or recognition of employee success, yet very quick to blame employee for random or unpredictable events.
    Joke of a 6 month review.

    Advice to Management

    Actually manage your department. Some people are great at doing their job but not great at managing.
    Give employees better initial training and career development track of some sort, if you want to keep them.

    I worked at Eurofins Scientific full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked with a good global staff, especially those in Europe. Had some good team members in US too. Decent technology platforms as well.

    Cons

    Working conditions were less than ideal. At that time there was a political battle between US locations for control of IT leadership. Can't speak to how it is now, but in 2012 the tone and working conditions were not great. I got out of there as soon as possible.
