    Pros

    Incredible opportunities with Pharmaceutical Companies in Europe and East Coast of United States. Chemists in residents are very hands on and helpful.

    Cons

    Limited access to European corporate headquarters. May be limited upper mobility if not from Denmark. Maybe others routes up the corporate ladder so maybe patient is key in the type of situation

    Pros

    Has strong market share and a good name in the US. Management understand the value of their reps but delivery can be a different story

    Cons

    Not enough support. Can be left hanging as a remote employee. Need better support for their field

    Advice to Management

    Continue to purchase local service offices and begin to expand your control over accounts (vs the dealers having all the relationship

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work.

    Cons

    If you work hard you get more work. If you are lazy and talk a lot they won't expect much and you can take it easy

    I have been working at Mettler-Toledo Autochem, Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great people. The company is a leader in it's industries with innovative products. I felt valued and the company invested a lot in making sure I had the equipment and the training to excel.

    The work environment is laid back and informal, everyone is willing to pitch in and help you on a project. People are approachable and nice even when deadlines are tight.

    The relationship with the parent company (Mettler Toledo) is mostly positive. In the marketing department they provide you with a lot of tools that make your job easier (CMS, CRM, Design Guidelines, Email System).

    Cons

    The senior and mid level management all have a background in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering. That means if you are in the Marketing department you will most likely be getting your orders from a Chemist who is not knowledgeable about Marketing. This also means that opportunities for advancement are very limited for people without a background in Chemistry.

    AutoChem was formed by Mettler Toledo from a group of formerly independent companies. There is a fare amount of residual resentment around the formation and the continued attempts by the president to make them work more closely together. This mostly comes from the old guard leadership and the younger guys are much more cooperative.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that Marketing is a discipline of it's own and that a PhD in Chemistry does not qualify you to do it.

    I think the leadership is already taking steps to better integrate the former companies (knows as Business Units).

    I worked at Mettler-Toledo Autochem, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Exceptional co-workers who'll work in a great team environment and cares about each other. Benefit are pretty much the standard with other companies. You'll get all your vacation on Jan 1. Don't have to earn them throughout the year.

    Cons

    Management with unrealistic goals compare with other companies metrics. They award people who needs to feel good as compare to giving it to one who deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with employees. Better Training.

    I have been working at Mettler-Toledo Autochem, Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    One of the best things about MT is the family feeling of a small organization (although MT is a worldwide company) MT-Autochem is just one division. The work hours are flexible and the once a month company lunches/events helps keep moral high in the work place.

    Cons

    The only drawback to MT is that because it is a large company, having the main office in MD makes it hard sometimes to get through the company red tape. Response times can be hampered by the time differences between divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the people on the floor. Things that work in theory don't always work the same in practice.
