    Pros

    Great focused, very experienced and innovative teams Global expertise if not available on site. Great team spirit Possibility to travel for work (could be a minus for some people) Great visibility Great opportunity for someone who wants to know more about DNA sequencing technologies (front, center, and back ends) and have a direct impact on them. Management favor innovation and promote inventions, ideas, exchanges......

    Cons

    Difficulty to deal with teams on different time zone. Small group means you have to do many things and often change priorities. Too many tasks, too little time ....and fast pace Great visibility You need to be self-sufficient [but for people with no experience, mentoring is always schedule for as long it takes; after that you need to be effective...] . No or limited connections with other QIAGEN US based sites...
