    I worked at Eurofins Scientific

    Pros

    core product development experience...
    great learning opportunities since you get free access to pluralsight.com
    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.
    free transport service
    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 worked at Eurofins Scientific

    Pros

    Some people on the team were very friendly and easy to get along with, helped when the workload got too high (which happened a lot!)
    Good for experience

    Cons

    LOW PAY!!!
    only follow lab guidelines and policies when auditors are coming to look around
    underpaid and overworked-had to stay and finish all incoming samples from that day even if
     it meant you were staying very late, no consideration for how you were travelling back/any plans you previously had
    Manager had a tendancy to not help and spend most of her time checking emails-told us to hurry up if we were falling behind but were working flat out.
    Very high turnover, constantly training new people who then leave after a couple of months
    Found that some who had been there longer, preferred to leave the majority of work to others including the jobs no one wanted to do.
    Managers were patronising and lazy

    I worked at Eurofins Scientific full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    You can definitely learn a lot depending on your trainer. Take good notes, ask questions, jump in and get your hands dirty!

    Cons

    The cons...oh boy, the cons. I keep seeing the word "cattle" in the other negative reviews and I have to agree. You are worked HARD. Not meeting a deadline is unacceptable here even if it's something out of your control (tech prepped sample wrong, instrument breaks, sample arrives late, etc.) and YOU will be staying as long as needed to finish it. Co-workers are nice, but everyone has so much on their plate that it's hard to interact. Management takes a lot of credit for your hard word and will frequently deny vacation time (or offer a shorter time) because they're always understaffed! If you like OT, long days and weekend work, this is for you. I stayed 6 months and heavily job hunted after my third month because no job should make you this miserable. I would look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to give your technicians/analysts some breathing room. I had co-workers frequently not taking a lunch because they didn't have enough time and there was so much pressure to perform. One of the analysts put in his two weeks and the lab almost mutinied. You have to value your people!
