    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at QIAGEN full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible working and good work life balance. Diversity is being addressed

    Cons

    Politics at line management level in Manchester tends to reward themselves. Promotion is not objective, its very subjective to the whims of the line manager. Very few women at the top, hardly any ethnic minority above middle management

    Advice to Management

    Get on with it. You tend to pat yourself at the back more often than you reflect on mistakes.

    Negative Outlook
    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
