Go elsewhere for a decent job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsOffice/lab is within 30 minute drive of anywhere in Des Moines

ConsThe place smells horrible - either like biproduct (dead things) or manure. The pay among lab staff and admin staff below director level is subpar and their health benefits are the worst I've ever seen - over $500 a month employee cost for family insurance. I have been working here as a temp for two months and witnessed many instances of questionable behavior among managers. Example: the administrative area was closed off due to black mold but the lab staff was lied to and told they are just painting that area. The catholic religion/rules are regularly discussed openly by HR staff in front of other staff. I recently took a tour of the laboratories and have never seen a more unhappy group of people. I was offered a permanent position, however, am not interested at any rate. Turnover is extremely high among not only Eurofins Scientific but among all the Eurofins business units (they go by many different names). My two month contract here is almost up and I couldn't be happier. I would rather be unemployed than work here. Beware!! The CEO, Michael Russell, is the only person I have met here that didn't leave me with a feeling of creepiness. A very odd group of people! The administrative staff in the Des Moines location will most likely not have jobs within a couple years as they are slowly moving operations to another service center in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I worked at Eurofins Scientific


    Pros: The people are nice, for the most part. It's a job… Cons: You will never be promoted. The turnover rate is extremely high; most of the people that work there are temps so think about this… Advice to Senior Management: Go to some sort of management training. Hire assistant supervisors… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
