    I worked at Randox Laboratories full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Travel - a lot. At the worst hotels - no work life balance - no Commission. This company now has such a bad reputation that I can see recruiters, HR, or interns are forced to post sterling reviews. Do be aware and wary!

    Cons

    Everything is s con - there is nothing good about this company except for the products they make. The sheep producing antibodies get treated better than the people.

    Advice to Management

    Show them respect, pay, and honesty. You might be very surprised what you get back!

    I worked at Randox Laboratories (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Chance to work with young people and some talented HQ based R&D

    Cons

    Travel on your own time- often from non-home airports and during the night.
    Finance & HR put you down when you point out THIER mistakes
    No Corporate credit card.
    Nepotistic and incestual promotions.
    Recently investigated for manipulating QC data by British Gov.

    Advice to Management

    If you have something that you dislike about an employee or process- counsel them, instead of demoting or dismissing them.

    Pros

    They have no prescence in NYC.

    Cons

    Archane time wasting and needlessly repetitive field reporting system. Price quote method is not efficient. Poor training. Inexcusabe errors in travel planning by Antrim support staff. Lack of problem solving skills by field rep support staff. Attempts to report gross negligence by support staff are handled by coworkers and covered up with no resolution except blame the complainaner. Abuse of field staff's use of personal funds for business expenses. Your tenure here will not be highly regarded by the industry. Sale support staff has lots of excuses about why certain things don't get done on time. Cannot compete in major U.S. markets.

    Advice to Management

    It is difficult to erase the years of complacency that has permeated your Antrim staff. The Antrim staff does not have the attitude of urgency that U.S. business demands. U.S. business is at "warp speed" and a support staff with a " I did not get to it" response, or negligent erros are inexcusable.

    I worked at Randox Laboratories full-time

    Pros

    Short term job consisting of mostly data entry for the micromanaging senior management if that is what you seek...

    Cons

    Stay away if you are serious about your career or sales reputation. Constantly look over your shoulder for an out of the blue sack...
    More emphasis on data entry than making sales calls.
    NO commission or sales plans - or profit sharing, as it is called.
    Micromanagement heaven.
    A form to fill out a form.
    Cheated at every turn.
    Inefficiency galore!
    Make sure you are attractive and under 30 or "retirement" is just around the corner.

    Bottom line -- stay far far away.

    Advice to Management

    Take your employees seriously and look for ways to improve retention. You will never make it in some markets without listening to those that know that market. Value the employee and become efficient in your practices. It will go a long way in growing the business. You are settling. You have some great products but your paranoia is holding you back from exponentially better bottom lines.
