    Pros

    Encouragement to progress if you have a progressive mindset, given opportunites to experience more.

    Cons

    Low pay. Very low pay. And any attempt to “harmonise and improve” pay never seems to come to fruition, a lot of talk.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on the plans you release to staff about improving pay conditions, as well as recognising that some “entry level” employees do far above and beyond their job discription

    Pros

    Great management. The managers really listen to concerns employees have and care about employees well-being

    Cons

    When you are new, you get stuck doing what no one wants to do most of the week. Don't get to do much science related stuff

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

    Pros

    As a Junior, I was assigned a project that required much more experience that I could account for. The responsibilities were high and I grew professionally at a very fast pace. I achieved more in 1 year at Eurofins than I ever thought I could, pushed myself to my limits and gained invaluable experience.

    Cons

    The pay was very low for the amount of work put in, the stress involved and the pressure. Management was nearly nonexistent and was very happy to let me take all the responsibility an blame if a mistake was made, never re-evaluating itself. For a global leader in laboratory analysis, I was appaled by how badly employees were taken care of, especially for the technical staff (underpaying while asking autonomous, pro-active and hardworking personnel)

    Advice to Management

    Better value and take care of your technical staff. For big projects, hire people with more experience, capable of handling egos as well as pressure.

    I have been working at Eurofins Scientific full-time

    Pros

    Being an in-sourced employee is better than being a sub-contractor or contractor with no benefits

    Cons

    The pay scale scale as compared to colleague counterparts sucks. we get paid less to do more work and it's often the grunt work, of which we are given no credit or recognition

    Advice to Management

    Step up your game. Employees are disenchanted after the 1st year of employment.

    I have been working at Eurofins Scientific full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are great. Learned a plethora of knowledge from the manufacturing and services (molecular biology) aspects, as well as IT, marketing, and sales aspects. Awesome resume builder. Learned many business as well as life lessons.

    Cons

    Volatile market and lack of response time from upper management. Company is on a race to the bottom in pricing. Company can't afford experienced staff (high turnover).

    Advice to Management

    Don't let sales bury the company. Good sales people can sell without completely butchering prices. There is no reason that pricing should be 10 - 30 percent of what it was 4 years ago........
