    Pros

    Small microbiology lab so you get to learn all methods the lab performs. Training was very good even though they expected you to learn a lot in short amount of time.

    Cons

    Hours tend to vary and have to work on the weekend. The pay is not very good especially with the high standards they have for the work you do.

    Pros

    You get your salary. But not much hikes are expected.
    Few teams are good.
    Very few people really concerned about Work and Delivery

    Cons

    Few teams are good. Few teams are worst. In few teams managers blame developers for their failures.
    Managers are interested in politics and not in delivery of the project.
    High blame game
    Very few people got work from home policy. Lot of discrimination.
    Management is not concerned about employees. They are cattle.
    Some Mangers are rejected candidates. They were hired since they could not get anybody for the position.
    Shifted to new buildings but with Horrible restrooms.
    Managers are gods and others just reverse of it.
    Some people were fired, laid off and left themselves because of managers
    Worst culture.
    Projects are failing mostly because of managers.
    Most of the Indian managers don't understand ABCD of technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't think managers are god and rest of them are cattle.
    Company gets profit not just because of managers. But because of motivated employees who work.
    Make management that help employees. Give importance to people who work rather than who communicate and show off.

    I worked at Eurofins Scientific

    Pros

    Nice people work at Eurofins. Most of the people there are doing their job everyday and working hard to support their families.

    Cons

    Very poor management. Low pay. No promotions. Overwork and underpay employees. Do not deal with personnel issues, so problems increase over time. Very rarely does Management discipline employees when rules are broken, even when it's an HR issues. Managers mistreat or talk down to employees regularly because they were never trained to be managers. Most of the mangers are a good scientists, but very poor at managing people. Some employees often break the rules and are not fired, which upsets the other employees. Employees are expected to work long hours and most departments are understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance needs great improvement. Pay people a more realistic salary. Resolve personnel issues instead of ignoring them to avoid additional problems in the future so you can do a better job of retaining your more highly motivated workers. Show people they are valued with promotions or even small raises. Follow HR protocols and discipline employees who do not follow the Employee Handbook.

    I worked at Eurofins Scientific

    Pros

    Great people to work with in the lab as well as in corporate.

    Cons

    The managers had no idea how to manage the people or how to help make sure you understood your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs more training on how to manage people and less on how to micromanage the department.
