    Cons

    I used to work as a R and D scientist here in Sydney. The trainer was not in the lab most of the times. She is always in a moody pose and visibly disturbed by my presence. She is from France and wants to hire people from France. Durin gthe probation these people are expecting no mistakes at all.

    I worked at bioMérieux full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There aren't many positives that I can think of...the intention of helping the world fight infectious disease is a good one...

    Cons

    Very inexperienced managers which have no idea about employee satisfaction, growth and development or career structure. Disorganised. Often expect staff to multi task and perform the roles of several people rather than have appropriate head count. Staff are managed with an iron fist and fear of losing their job rather than through positive leadership techniques. Success will depend on who you know rather than skill set. Product pipeline a concern with many products either not competitive in the market or in decline. Consider carefully before accepting offers here
