    Pros

    core product development experience...

    lot of travel opportunities to Europe and USA, though it's all short-term ..
    small , but highly experience team members.
    highly responsive management team... always available to hear the concerns and provide quick solutions..
    lot of coaching opportunities...
    regular team outings..
    easy access to senior level management.

    I had to quit Eurofins since i was getting relocated to another city. Having worked in 4 different companies in the last 11 years, I clearly rate Eurofins as the best employer.

    Cons

    poor support systems... (1 member admin team, 2 member hr team... )
    not all projects follow scrum. few follow, but most are on agile.
    matrixed orgnisation. most of them have dual managers.
    campus in whitefiled is owned , but not best in class.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue providing more tax benefit options.

    I have been working at Eurofins Scientific full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working here for about 6 months, and i find most of the new projects quite exciting. Most projects are related to LIMS and interface with Robotic devices. It's not Maintenance projects like what we get in Infy or wipro. People are constantly rotated between new projects to ensure skills are utilized properly. Trainings and international travels are encouraged. Lots of team outings and dinners.
    Mostly, all staffs are pampered. Management is very open and friendly. They take feedbacks positively and encourage employees to be vocal - This along makes me quite happy to work here.

    Cons

    Unknown brand in Indian Market.
    Location is in Varthur Kodi, whitefield.
    The Tech Park where Eurofins is situated is a little old. However i heard they are moving to SEZ next year which should resolve this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work of encouraging the feedbacks and taking actions.
    Have more TownHalls.
    Change the food vendor.

    Pros

    Cabs, Free food (Not good) and friendly people
    Short time onsites.
    Good pay.

    Cons

    Please do not join this company. There is no transparency. They tell that job in advanced technologies and after joining you will see that is in very old technologies like classic ASP, VB6 etc. Please be very care full joining in Bangalore location. Also it has filthy rest rooms equivalent to one in bus stands.
    Those who go to short term onsite need to serve company for another 10 months even the onsite is for 2 weeks. Otherwise need to payback the onsite expenditure back to company.
    No understanding of what we are going to work.
    Employee unfriendly, no work from home policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a transparency on what exactly employees work. and about the policies
    Please introduce employee friendly policy instead of the unrealistic travel policy.
    Also, note that employees stay in a company based on trust and not based on restricted policies.
