Featured Review

Current Employee - Inside Sales Specialist

I have been working at QIAGEN full-time for less than a year

Pros

QIAGEN is culturally diverse, highly dynamic and provides great benefits (i.e. Private Dental, Healthcare, Fitness contributions etc..). Besides, it provides excellent flexibility for their... employees to work from home, which significantly reduces any type of additional stress. Being part of QIAGEN is similar to being part of a big family, thus, to succeed here you must be willing to be a team player. Furthermore, QIAGEN is a highly meritocratic company, with a leadership management structure which promotes free-thinking across all corporate level. Don't be afraid to be creative!

Cons

I've been with the company for only 6 months now. None to report at the present time.

Advice to Management

Perhaps, review the real meaning behind what a "Specialist" role title really represents...
