    I have been working at Quidel full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great pay and great benefits.

    Cons

    My manager is a novice and narcissistic individual that gets away with bullying his employees and throwing them under the bus. Especially employees who challenge him and that refuse to feed his ego. This manager that I’m calling out shouldn’t even be a manager. Here are some facts: (1) is hardly ever available to his reps; (2) travels with reps maybe 1 time a year (and, this was before COVID); (3) fired a top performing rep that has been with Quidel for 8 years for a minor and lame reason. And, firing the rep while she was going through a horrible divorce, right before Christmas, during a pandemic. How does this guy go to bed at night?

    Pros

    It is a job, company is financially secure. Coworkers try their best.

    Cons

    Leadership is not managed properly and left to run amok. Those below VP are awesome. VP's are out of control and not held accountable. Lots of blame storming.
