    I worked at bioMérieux full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great team to work with. Good quality products that were market leaders.

    Cons

    Top management is egotistical and unrealistic. They do not plan well for the future and although they claim to care about employees they only care about shareholders. The company used to care about the people that made it what it was but after it went public everything changed and not for the better.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to listen to their employees because they are the ones who face the customers every day. CRM's do not tell you what the reality is on the streets. Also, the company used to be the industry leader in what it did but you lost that lead when you allowed BD to acquire the full laboratory automation that you were so proud to tout but never achieved. Learn from it, try to be proactive and... appreciate your customer-facing employees.
