    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at QIAGEN full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues, good place to learn but it comes at its own cost since they push you into the deep end from the beginning, good pension

    Cons

    No work life balance specially for function leads within project teams and project managers, high level of stress and workload, below average salary, basically you do a £65k job for £40k for example, I personally feel like I’m just another headcount to the senior management, no reward for when you’ve achieved far more than expected.

    Advice to Management

    Value the people who work for you and this includes financial compensation, treat them with respect, if you think the business is not profitable enough close it but don’t make people to do more and more work for you for the same money year after year, don’t lead them on and make them feel a pay rise is around the corner and then they try harder and harder to achieve it only to realise it was a false promise, this... business specially the Manchester site is not sustainable, you will realise this the hard way of you don’t take some drastic actions soon enough.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at QIAGEN full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Provides many training opportunities both internally and externally with a nice working environment

    Cons

    Not always the most competitive in salary. Also once you have completed said training, there may not always been a plan/direction for you to use it. QIAGEN has a lot of good plans and ideas, but does not always have the human resources to do it all.
