      Pros

      Really diverse job role, with a good level of working from home/out in the field. Colleagues are all very supportive and the training is well constructed. There is a lot of emphasis on empowering employees and improving working flexibility and diversity, which is a breath of fresh air. The role is very autonomous, and innovation is encouraged.

      Cons

      Due to covid, remote hands on training hasn't been possible. But honestly, I couldn't mention any cons from my point of view.

      The best job I've ever had! Reluctant to leave :-(

      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.

      Pros

      All work life has its ups and downs, but I can honestly say I enjoyed my time at QIAGEN Manchester and met some truly unforgettable colleagues whom I hope to stay in touch with. - Some excellent training available. - Opportunities to grow for those that are proactive. - Great variety of staff and interests on site, generally a great work environment. - Good software/hardware. - Opportunities to affect improvements

      Cons

      - Progression can be slower than one would like, onus seems to be on the employee to market oneself. - Diversity in more senior roles could be improved, however the company very transparent about this and has committees in place to tackle the issue.
