Pros

As described by the first reviewer-
Friendly, helpful and experienced staff make Eurofins a good place to learn in pleasant, semi rural surroundings.

Cons

The disparity between the pay rates of longer serving staff and management bonuses versus the poor pay for newer members means they loose staff quickly.

    Useful for gaining laboratory experience before getting a properly paid job elsewhere.

    Pros

    Friendly and sociable staff.
    Good sense of team spirit.
    Flexi-time is useful.
    Nice site location.
    The Christmas meal and summer barbecue are welcome events.

    Cons

    Very poor pay and unfair conditions. Some staff get a bigger holiday allowance and are paid significantly more than others to do the same job, often to a lower standard.
    No opportunities for professional or career development: Eurofins almost never promote internally, always hiring externally and never consider using their own employees abilities and skills.
    High staff turnover due to dissatisfaction with the unfair pay and working conditions.
    No pay increase for three years yet there has been a lot of money spent on managers and their expenses.

    Advice to Management

    Make the pay and working conditions fairer for laboratory staff - it is demoralising to have wildly differing pay levels for doing the same job.
    Give current staff opportunities to progress their careers within the company.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers. It's a good entry level experience but is not somewhere to work in the long run. It's good on the resume and puts your for in the door for other places.

    Cons

    Heavy micromanaging. Favoritism. Nepotism. Very low pay. Upper management will tell you to your face that you are replaceable, in case you have a work complaint. Very high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Trust and treat your employees like adults and lay off the micromanaging. Give your employees a competitive salary.
