    I have been working at QIAGEN part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great business at a global level. Great values driven global mission. Brilliant and strategic minded country leader.

    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
