    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.

    Cons

    Complete disconnect regionally. Lacking resources. Lacking professional development and contemporary business practices. Zero work life balance. Culturally the regional business shows preference for the Singapore working culture, Australian working culture is looked down upon as entitled and overly expensive.

    "Once the company that cared, QIAGEN has become the cost-cutting outsourcer, morale is low."

    I have been working at QIAGEN full-time

    Pros

    Flexible (but flexibility decreasing). Seriously great products, perform better than the competition in most cases. The company has (or least used to have), a sense of ethics and focus on more than just the corporate dollar.

    Cons

    Poor management with next to zero responses to email or phone requests for almost anything that isn't a direct, immediate sale. No room for growth. High staff turnover at all levels, including senior management. Cost cutting, outsourcing and ineffective armchair decisions made by uninformed areas of the business have contributed to low morale and high loss of talent. Expect rough tines ahead.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at QIAGEN full-time

    Pros

    Some colleagues are customer-focussed and there is moderate work-life balance.

    Cons

    Culture is going downhill, management is not listening, cost cutting of support structures, the wrong people get promoted, not enough recognition/appreciation, career development is stunted, poor training opportunities, even more poorly resourced, short-sighted corporate strategy. Pay is lower than competitors'. Overall an organisation that fails to look after its greatest assets - people.
