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

    Pros

    Nice co-workers. It's a good entry level experience but is not somewhere to work in the long run. It's good on the resume and puts your for in the door for other places.

    Cons

    Heavy micromanaging. Favoritism. Nepotism. Very low pay. Upper management will tell you to your face that you are replaceable, in case you have a work complaint. Very high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Trust and treat your employees like adults and lay off the micromanaging. Give your employees a competitive salary.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with your goals, tell your employers the truth about the business decisions that are being made.
