    I worked at bioMérieux full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company with excellent upper, middle and front line managers. They are innovative and always searching to refine their pathogen analysis automated systems to stay ahead of the competition. In the thirty years that I was a senior field engineer, the company never had a year where the profit, revenue goals and growth expectations were not accomplished.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any significant cons, other than at times the field service was covering a lot of area with insufficient numbers of field engineers. That was only for a short period of time when BioMerieux bought other companies and the other companies base products had to also be serviced until more field engineers were hired. Eventually that issue was resolved with the hiring and training of more field engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep managing the company as it has been and never let the competition get the lead!

    I worked at bioMérieux full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice campus and cafeteria with discount

    Cons

    No career advancement unless you know someone or someone quits/get fired. No interest in growing the employees or utilizing their best strengths.
    They don't treat all the employees the same way and in some areas they are even discriminatory.
    Mostly african americans workers in manufacturing and packaging and mostly whites in administrative positions in Durham.
    No equal opportunity for internal jobs. Buddy system. Some employees have it made but it's not everybody. Some departments have better managements than others.

    Advice to Management

    They don't care and are not going to change.

    The benifits are get. They host a program that makes Healthcare almost free for you and your family. 3 dollar lunch discount. Strong work load.

    Cons

    Buddy system. No room for growth. No support. Low pay. No team building. Bad communication. Poor performance review techniques.

    Remember you have group leads and team leadso when you have team buildings. Those people are making it happen. The women in management do not feel equal.

    I worked at bioMérieux full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, vacation time ..company as a whole is great for what they contribute to society.

    Cons

    Nephertism Is RAMPANT in the St Louis site....
    It's not what you know it's who you know in the company to get ahead. To many managers, over kill in management. [To many chefs spoil the stew] very visible distance between employees and management.
    Only time I saw mine was when he was telling us how bad we were doing and to threaten or jobs. Morale
    Is not a priority.

    There are people well qualified in production to fill open positions but unless you're a favorite or a friend or relative growth isn't fostered
