    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at QIAGEN full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Name recognition, and as always there are great people seeking work who come to work for firms of this size.

    Cons

    Employees are not perceived as nor treated as assets of the company, Leadership lacks vision and strategy. Good paying jobs are being moved overseas, or broken into smaller roles for less pay. Leadership is flippant about laying people off right and do so right before the holidays and the cycle is ceaseless. Hire, lay off, hire, lay off, hire, and on and on..

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at QIAGEN full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Global vision is very noble Workplace flexibility is good Salaries are fairly good

    Cons

    Slave to the stock market - always pushing for revenue today rather than future profits Severe staff instability problem - recent country management increasing the problem Imported management doesn't understand local workplace culture or value local staff

    Advice to Management

    Look closer at how country management is treating staff Take time to invest for long term profits rather than pushing for instant revenue
