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

    Pros

    I think upper management tries the best they could. Their hands are tied up by things above them that they have no control over. I applaud their positive attitude.

    Cons

    There's a lot of disarray going on with the company right now. There are 3 branches and 2 of the 3 branches have basically lost all of their business. It's frustrating becaue management still keeps saying everything is fine but some of us haven't had work in 3+ months. On the branch I was on, it's like the staff is already checked out. There is zero teamwork and comraderie. I have never worked with a "drier" group...

    Advice to Management

    It feels like management isn't talking to anyone about what's going on. People are really worried about their jobs yet they seem to continue to hire people even though there are people who haven't worked in months. There's only so much time stockholders are going to be okay with paying all these people to stay home.

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

    Pros

    QIAGEN has great products. Great quality that you can be proud of.

    Cons

    Ridiculous mentality as to how much you're expected to work. Everyone cheats to survive and it's an unofficially accepted system. But to still keep up the high pressure although it can never be satisfied is just stupid. Too much internal squabble where rules come before customer focus.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get more focus on customer satisfaction than your internal BCG rules and KPI.

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

    Pros

    - Frühe Verantwortungsübernahme - Anspruchsvolle Aufgaben - Internationale Kooperationen

    Advice to Management

    Die Produktpipelines und die Kultur von QIAGEN waren ausschlaggebend für meine Entscheidung für QIAGEN als Arbeitgeber. Allerdings sollten die Arbeitnehmer eines Unternehmens mehr im Fokus stehen. Schließlich sichern zufriedene und loyale Mitarbeiter den Erfolg eines Unternehmens. Ein Unternehmen der Leistungsbezogene Beförderungen abschafft und erfahrene Mitarbeiter nicht fair entlohnt um Kosten zu sparen tut sich selber...
