Does QIAGEN have a pension plan?

Pros

Good pension and benefits (gym payments, fruit in office etc), flexible working hours

Cons

Favouritism is rife. Promotion cycle unclear and managers show a lot of bias. Very high pressure with tight deadlines. Staff pushed to work overtime and often through lunch to get work done. Low salary for such a company and considering the high stress levels. Very uneven work distribution. A lot of people stuck in old habits, not open to new ideas. Culture can feel very toxic and "dog eat dog".
