    I worked at Bio-Rad Labs full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Generally friendly. Good growth in the past few years -- in some areas. Relaxed work environment. Many travel opportunities.

    Cons

    Routine layoffs of 2-5% of workforce annually at Christmas. Local fiefdoms create local environments --good or bad. Way behind on technology and product development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire outside.

    I have been working at Bio-Rad Labs full-time

    Pros

    Big, conservative company that tends to take care of their people.

    Cons

    Slow to react to market conditions and hesitant to make any really big moves. Fails to capitalize on opportunities. Have to live in northern CA to advance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop your love affair with all the consultants that come in an sell you on processes: SFDC, SBTP. Stop bogging everyone down with the relentless big brother monitoring and forecasting. Let your salesforce sell.
