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

    Pros

    The people who work at Qiagen are what make it a great place to work rather than the job itself. The benefits are good but Qiagen is not the only company to offer these and the same can be said for flexible working hours. Work life balance is ok but the onus is on the individual employee to enforce this rather than the company as a whole.

    Cons

    Stress levels can be high depending on which project you are allocated to and who the managers are. Some Projects are given all the resource and everyone else is expected to cope There is a high turn over of staff at all levels of the company The pay is low for the industry and location yet they want highly motivated employees. (Even after the ~4years I have been here my pay is less than my previous... job) New hire staff without experience can earn the same as those that have been in the role for a long period of time and have more experience which seems unfair. Wage rises in April generally track inflation so it is not actually a wage rise. Pay scales are benchmarked but employees aren’t allowed to know what the range for the role actually is.

    Advice to Management

    You have said you want to decrease staff turn over but you seem unwilling to listen to the advice from your staff that pay is the biggest issue for people leaving.
