    I have been working at Eurofins Scientific full-time

    Pros

    Pay (Shift Differential). Great location right on the river.

    Cons

    Not personable. Lack of communication. Terrible outlook on work (organ donation tissue samplings).

    Advice to Management

    They openly lied about some aspects of their company after I interviewed with them. One was about the work that they do, the other one was there communication they have with potential employees and communicating with them. . They have terrible communication with employees. You can find a lot better companies

    Pros

    The coffee is hot...sometimes.

    Cons

    No Employee Ownership Program ...greed at the management level rules the company starting at the top. Bonuses are non-existent. The French are notorious for treating Americans with disdain...and this is evident with this French CEO...how much money is enough for you....80 billion??

    Advice to Management

    Plain and Simple...let your employees participate in the growth of the company valuation and make individual Division Presidents and VP's share their gains with others instead of just filling their own pockets. Greed, Greed, Greed.

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

    Pros

    3 weeks PTO to start.

    Cons

    Huge culture of blaming low level employees for problems above their pay grade. Raises are nearly non-existent. Over achievement is never recognized. You're just a number in a spreadsheet to upper management. They could not care less about low level employees. Employee appreciation is a tray of supermarket cookies once a month.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire the temps who suck at their job just because you need warm bodies. You need to pay more to keep the smart ones around. You just get left with all the dummies who are only shuffling from one crisis to the next.

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

    Pros

    Free food occasionally. Besides that, honestly nothing.

    Cons

    Treated like your nothing by management.
    Constantly lied to by management.
    Expected to work overtime everyday.
    Management doesn't care about their employees as long as they are getting paid.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your employees. the fact that you are over working one person it ridiculous. There are other people that work in the lab with less work and instead to you give everything to one specific person then put him down when he doesn't do every last bit up to par. You all should be ashamed to even pride yourselves on how you treat your employees. You treat them like garbage then try to make it up to them by promising something just to take it away in 6 months because it was never a real thing it was just a bribe to make them stay.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are okay and they will hire just about anyone, so if you need a job desperately, you can get one here.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything is a con with the Food Microbiology department in Lancaster PA. Management is terrible, turnover rate is super high (someone quit every week, sometimes two people per week). They force you to work overtime every day without a reprieve, and if you can't, they will write you up. Understaffed, staff is overworked and underpaid. They make promises of raises, but no one saw a raise the year that I was there. There are way too many negatives to list.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified people and enough of them to keep up with production. Treat people like humans instead of prisoners. Keep your word or don't speak.
