    I worked at BioFire Diagnostics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Above average benefits and beginning PTO options.

    Cons

    Manager openly disrespects employees. Based on speaking with others now in different departments this has been an issue for many years and is continually swept under the rug. Manager hires friends and allows them to get by at the bare minimum while mistreating everyone else. There is blatant favoritism, retaliation, and a hostile work environment. The department head always chooses the easy route and takes whatever the manager says to be valid. HR has been notified of the conflict of interest and ignores it. Like the title states, this is a lawsuit waiting to happen. Biofire is a solid company overall just find another route into the company.

    I have been working at BioFire Diagnostics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This job has great benefits and a pretty good work culture.

    Cons

    It feels as if the company doesn’t really care about employees within manufacturing and is very disconnected. Management also appears to have no idea what they are doing at times and don’t seem to really care about employees. They seem more concerned about pleasing the people upstairs than keeping their employees happy.

    I have been working at BioFire Diagnostics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits and that's about it.

    Cons

    I've been working here a little over 6 months and since the day I got hired they have done nothing but change everything I initially joined the company for. Now if I am literally 1 min late I get a "1/2 point", the time clocks are also thru the gown room so you have to change first before even clocking in and that's after you spend 15 to 30 mins trying to find parking. Once you get here and are clocked in, it just gets worse. complete dysfunctional, like the whole company. I am hired to fix down equipment and regularly deal with the parts department being out of stock. How can I fix something if you guys can't even supply me with the parts. Trying to make a change here is also a joke. It will take you over a year of paperwork and pain to make any changes to the why they do things here. You're also treated like a kid in school you get (2) 15 min breaks and a 30 min lunch that you have to clock out for....but don't got a min over 30 or you'll get a "half point" so expect to stand by the time clock and wait for the exact min to clock back in. I have worked for other large companies and by far this is the most dysfunctional place I've ever seen. I could go on and on about this place but just take my word, you're better off somewhere else. I was hired into the engineering department and within 6 months was involuntary moved to the worst department in the company...MANUFACTURING. Whatever you do, do NOT join the manufacturing team/ group. They don't listen to their employees at all and treat you like a child. Also no consideration for work/life balance. I joined this job for the 4 days, 10 hr shifts and was forced into a 5 days a week 8.5hrs a day schedule.
