Senior Maint. Mechanic, Plant Engineering (Former Employee) – Brea, CA – March 15, 2018
Over time, and after the company was sold several times, it became obvious that the maintenance department was going to be outsourced.
I learned a great deal working with Beckman, and the most difficult part of the job was realizing it was going to end.
I enjoyed working there for over 30 years. I had many opportunities over time to be involved with different departments on a variety of projects. I was encouraged to, and took advantage of, any learning opportunity I was offered.
Good working environment with a variety of responsibilities.
My department was outsourced, and my job was terminated.
Senior Technical Writer (Former Employee) – Fullerton, CA – March 11, 2018
I enjoyed working for Beckman Coulter. I had constant assignments, enough to keep me busy, but never so much that I couldn't manage workload. The only reason I left them was that they had announced they were going to have a layoff and I needed to work so I found a better paying job.
Field Service Engineer - Hematology (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – March 5, 2018
Back when I started with Beckman Coulter it was a wonderful place to work. A few years ago the company was bought out by Danaher and has been going thru some difficult transitions. They are constantly changing protocols with little to no instruction and constant employee turnover.
Senior Field Service Engineer (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 5, 2018
This is the worst company to work for. They have the worst management that completely controls your life. Micromanagement is the only management they understand. Lots of turn over and very little advancement available.

Developmental Scientist (R&D) (Former Employee) – Brea, CA – March 1, 2018
Employees are treated as tools. There is no work/life balance.. The company professes to care about divers opinions and perspectives. However, if you don't fall in line with the management team's prescribed course of action immediately, you will be marginalized. There is a revolving door of senior management
Program Manager, Urinalysis (Former Employee) – Chatsworth, CA – February 15, 2018
Working at Beckman Coulter was never boring. Working on 5 different projects I found my fellow employees collaborative. Management did an excellent job in focusing the employees on common, consistent goals.
Senior Lead Formulations Technician (Former Employee) – Carlsbad, CA – February 14, 2018
Good company when Dr. Beckman was alive and still involved with company, challenging environment to maintain deliveries but a good thing. Company continually trying to improve itself in being competitive in tight market.
R&D (Current Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – February 10, 2018
Beckman Coulter offers stability, but, a limited potential to advance my career. I work with many good people, but, management employees outdated techniques. This leads to frustration as I'm unable to make a change.
Benefits, salary and flexible hours
Limited meaningful training, outdated management philosophy, poor prioritization of projects

Senior HR Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chatsworth, CA – January 26, 2018
This is a good company to work for but has gone through many management changes in the past 4 years. Many restructures. Benefits are great including 3 Volunteer Time Off days a year in addition to the standard Med/Den/Vis/Life?401K.
I would recommend this company as a decent place to work.
