    I worked at QIAGEN full-time

    Pros

    Excellent product quality and breadth of portfolio.

    Cons

    Many colleagues with MBAs but generally possessing poor business sense and low market/sales experience and knowledge. Below par remuneration. Short term thinking rather than longer term vision.

    Advice to Management

    Be humble, respect and learn from the market leaders. Ensure regional management is capable of cultivating a work environment that is reflective of the CEO's and the company's aspirations.

    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
