Does QIAGEN have a pension plan?

Pros

- Challenging: you get the opportunity to highlight your scientific and technical experience, along with in sights to business development - Diverse: Each day is different, great mix of problem solving/ technical along with customer interaction - Environment: you are never alone, fantastic support and training. The FS UK team is hands down the best team I've worked for. No drama, no nonsense, everyone has the same goal in mind to provide exceptional customer experience and work together to achieve this Progression: Structured career from day 1, you get what you put in. Opportunities available for the taking for everyone - Superb benefits, food allowance, generous car and fuel allowance, gym, broadband contributions along with other salary sacrificed benefits (dental and health etc), complete travel paid for, 10% bonus annually, great pension contribution - Family friendly

Cons

- Salaries could be better in line with the current competition, however the generous benefits make up for this - You need a strong mental capacity as the training is intense, learning various platforms back to back including hardware/ software/ applications, then being released into the field. Nevertheless, the support is fantastic and you're never alone - Sometimes work late into the evening reading SOPs/ performing admin duties as you're on the road daily sometimes there is no time to schedule this in working hours.

Advice to Management

Thank you for your on-going support and encouragement, and I'm sure you will drive the success of the department further
