      Pros

      Really good co-workers, and everyone tries to work together to get it right. Data is king here. Lot of opportunities to develop

      Cons

      There are a lot of internal politics. There are a lot of meetings, and tons of constant compliance training, and proper resourcing is a constant issue.

      Company with great potential

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 
        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at Molecular Devices full-time

        Pros

        Good products and talent. Issues are dealt with by searching for a root cause rather than a scapegoat. Current implementation of DBS is on the right track - thoughtfully applied. Metrics provide visibility into how departments are doing early so that course corrections can be made.

        Cons

        Disfunction at the executive level is holding back this company. Too many decisions are made in conference rooms rather than working with those close to issue. Too many legacy products rather than focusing on those with the highest potential.

        Advice to Management

        Address the hard issues, find common ground, and challenge each other to achieve the targets that matter. Engage directly with team members to learn what is and isn't working and ask for suggestions on how things can be done better.

        Pros

        None None None None None (had to put 5 words in for pros section)

        Cons

        Everything about this company is wrong. Work-life balance does not exist. Favoritism plays a big role in advancement. Employees are stretched thin. Profit margins on products are terrible especially at the end of the quarter. Always in the red unless there is no demand.

        Advice to Management

        Stay where you are because we don't want you anywhere else
