    I have been working at Bio-Techne full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love this job. My coworkers are great people. The benefits of the job are fantastic. Seriously, the subject matter seems dull, but it's really exciting. Despite being large, you don't feel like just another cog in the wheel. They're interested in you as a person. They take into account your career is one facet of your life and allow you leniency for sick days and childcare.

    Cons

    Bio-Techne is a BIG company. Each of the hubs (Denver, Minneapolis, San Jose, England, China, Canada) is sort of its own company, but they do try to bring everyone together. Also, sometimes it feels like deadlines are unrealistic.

    Pros

    Sorry to say there aren't any that come to mind.

    Cons

    Growth 100% through acquisition only. Senior management is completely focused on empire building. Has become an array of silos with no cohesion whatsoever. Turnover is high and morale is less than an afterthought.

    Pros

    Great products with an awesome and very smart group of scientists. Culture used to be good before Biotechne's acquisition. Things changed for the worse.

    Cons

    There are some really overworked teams. Management does not encourage internal candidate's movement from one department to the other not even a clear career development path. The salary isn't competitive.
