    I worked at IDEXX Laboratories part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. It gave me invaluable corporate experience and the internship program was structured really well.

    Cons

    Was pigeon-hold into meaningless work that was not on the application, however, was later moved to a more senior role.

    Advice to Management

    Try to allow the interns to grow more in the field they are studying in. Interns want to learn as much as possible during their time.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with smart people, solve problems, take charge of issues, and sometimes feel good about what's been accomplished.

    Cons

    Management has no clue, or maybe just doesn't care, about how to reward and retain good people. Middle managers seem to care only about how to impress their bosses. Upper management seems unconcerned about issues facing first line managers and specialists. Results of employee surveys are ignored.

    Advice to Management

    IDEXX is being hollowed out in your pursuit of quarterly bottom line results. Find a way to rebuild the company or be looking for new jobs.

    Pros

    Nothing good to say sorry

    Cons

    All the above reviews lie. You only get all that time of insight health care all of it if you work at the main lab in Westbrook. All other labs less time off no insight anything microwave if lucky. No work from home no flexibility none just at the main show off Lab. All others suffer. They tell you your education doesn’t matter. This comes from a manager who only graduated high school. Saves money by not buying needed items and throwing actual hazardous waste in the regular trash to save money. No promotions and overlooks long timers. I want out. Only cares about faking it for minority’s to look good you could get beaten or raped by a fellow Emily and if the attacker was a minority or gay they would do nothing because they say they are scared they will be sued.

    Advice to Management

    What you are doing will come back on you...

    Pros

    Akzeptables Einstiegsgehalt. Das Unternehmen ist im stetigen Wachstum.

    Cons

    Eine schlechte Arbeitsatmosphäre. "Von oben herab Mentalität". Mitarbeiter stacheln sich Gegenseitig zum lästern auf und das Managment heizt dieses weiter an. Die Zentrale in Amsterdam scheint verhältnismässig professionel. In Ludwigsburg wird man dagegen nicht glücklich.
    (Nicht überraschend wenn man sich vor Augen hält, dass man mit Menschen zusammenarbeitet denen ihre Haustiere wichtiger sind, als ihr menschliches Umfeld. Und dies dann auch noch als positives Einstellungskriterium gesehen wird.)

    Advice to Management

    Es ist ein paar Jahre her, dass ich bei euch angestellt war. Daher hoffe ich einfach, dass die schwarzen Schafe das Weite gesucht haben.
