    I worked at eScreen full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people I worked with and the environment. I was out of the Richmond office. Great managers. They couldn't get you what you wanted all of the time, but the tried to satisfy the needs of their employees. Benefits and accrued vacation was nice as well.

    Cons

    My Salary was pretty poor, but it appeared that the treated some of the lower level employees much better. Opportunity to advance was very slim.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you can. The money is hard to get from corporate, so I understand, but outside of that, no complaints.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, good people in department

    Cross-functional teams are shifting so management is a bit confused at present. Outlook looks good, though.

    I have been working at eScreen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Casual dress code is the only pro here

    Cons

    90 day probation period, horrible management, zero flexibility, terrible culture and low pay

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing. The management at Escreen (now Abbott) is horrible. They treat you like children rather than the college educated professional that you are. Relax your attendance policy and allow flexibility. It’s 2018. Allow your staff to work from home sometimes. The retention is horrible. Changes must be made

    I have been working at eScreen full-time

    Pros

    Working hours were very flexible with the ability to work whenever ad long as the 40 hour requirement was met with the option to work from home.

    Cons

    Management was the worst that I had seen. Inept managers without clearly defined roles provided a really bad atmosphere with low moral.

    Advice to Management

    Better train your managers and give them a clearly defined role and them support them when needed. Don't promote bad employees grin within as this makes the situation worse.

    Great culture fostering employee relationships. Opportunities for professional growth. Staff with long tenure and breadth of knowledge. Fun place to work.

    I worked at eScreen full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most people there are awesome. If you do your job and keep your head down you'll be fine. They dont like trouble makers....

    Cons

    By Trouble makers I mean anyone who has a problem with how the way things are run. Managers take credit for work that team does and subordinates are rarely shown appreciation. Alere has brought new policies that are CRAZY and managers are too afraid to stand up for their teams.

    My advice...STAY AWAY FROM THE ACCOUNTING DEPT!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your subordinates!!!!! Just because we have problems doesnt mean the problem is with you.
