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

    Pros

    The Company believed in me right from the beginning and within 18 months allowed me to implement suggestions to increase productivity and profits. They did, I did and we did!

    Cons

    Our off-site managers for our site, being so very busy at their jobs too, used the basic trend that if you are good at your job/position and there are no problems, leave you alone to continue. It would mean so much more if every once in a while there was an Atta-boy/girl vs only contacting us when there is a problem.

    Advice to Management

    I guess I would have to say, again, it would mean so much if every once in a while there was an Atta-boy/girl. Everyone likes to be reminded they are appreciated as an employee. It lifts their spirits, gives them a since they are also important to the Company. They will work harder to keep the Company successful. Thank you

    I have been working at Eurofins Scientific full-time

    Pros

    The workload can be a lot but if you get everything done then the bosses are happy and leave you alone. Possible OT off shifts can be picked up. Not working with the general public.

    Cons

    The pay is fairly low but there isn't much competition in Des Moines. Some of the Tech jobs are definitely better than others and the pay doesn't reflect that. Can be forced into picking up someone's slack.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up to date with the workloads and make sure communication is clear with all the employees. A lot of the techs will be moving on to a different job after a year so that needs to be accounted for.

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

    Pros

    Working here for about 6 months, and i find most of the new projects quite exciting. Most projects are related to LIMS and interface with Robotic devices. It's not Maintenance projects like what we get in Infy or wipro. People are constantly rotated between new projects to ensure skills are utilized properly. Trainings and international travels are encouraged. Lots of team outings and dinners.
    Mostly, all staffs are pampered. Management is very open and friendly. They take feedbacks positively and encourage employees to be vocal - This along makes me quite happy to work here.

    Cons

    Unknown brand in Indian Market.
    Location is in Varthur Kodi, whitefield.
    The Tech Park where Eurofins is situated is a little old. However i heard they are moving to SEZ next year which should resolve this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work of encouraging the feedbacks and taking actions.
    Have more TownHalls.
    Change the food vendor.
