    I have been working at QIAGEN full-time

    Pros

    Some colleagues are customer-focussed and there is moderate work-life balance.

    Cons

    Culture is going downhill, management is not listening, cost cutting of support structures, the wrong people get promoted, not enough recognition/appreciation, career development is stunted, poor training opportunities, even more poorly resourced, short-sighted corporate strategy. Pay is lower than competitors'. Overall an organisation that fails to look after its greatest assets - people.

    I have been working at QIAGEN full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Benefits and the work life balance good depending on the department. There are a few excellent managers who serve as mentors.

    Cons

    Pay is dramatically below the industry standard. Many within management have been promoted into the role without any management experience just because they needed to find a position for them. Scientists are not as well respected within the company as they were in the past. The North American branch has large layoffs twice a year (summer time and at Christmas). Gifts and parties are nearly eliminated and the atmosphere has changed to 'be lucky to still have a job.' Despite a diversity program, sexism and discrimination continue to be a major issue with white males making up most of the higher level positions within North America.

    I worked at QIAGEN full-time

    Pros

    Work Life Balance is great. but that also means your co-workers are not pulling their weight.

    Cons

    Too much hierarchy and no incentive to think outside the box. If you are used to operating like a robot, executing on exact instructions, by all means, join this company, but dont expect to be rewarded for anything you do. Oh and did I mention that they pay MUCH BELOW market? Jeez, we live in San Francisco, one of the most expensive areas of the country!
