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

    Pros

    Flexible working and good work life balance. Diversity is being addressed

    Cons

    Politics at line management level in Manchester tends to reward themselves. Promotion is not objective, its very subjective to the whims of the line manager. Very few women at the top, hardly any ethnic minority above middle management

    Advice to Management

    Get on with it. You tend to pat yourself at the back more often than you reflect on mistakes.

    Pros

    Great culture good benefits, direct hire sales reps gets to pick a Mercedes as an option when choosing your company car. Gas card and company car comes with no out of pocket expenses to you. Great work, life balance if you know how to manage your time.

    Cons

    Training program could be better. Too many people working on one account. This needs to be streamlined.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the new hire training program to make it more efficient. Company wide directories would be an excellent idea to give new hires!!!
