Quality (Current Employee) – California – June 22, 2017
Beckman Coulter is a good place to work, with good work/life balance and good site level management. Benefits are mid to low tier, and advancement is spotty. Pay is competitive. You can work other places for better benefits or more money, but Beckman does a good job of supporting people, so you'd have to decide how much harder you want to work for a few extra bucks.

This company was my favorite one of all to work in. Unfortunately I got laid off. Great enviroment, awesome people, the managers there were the best. My jobs was so interesting and cool and I really enjoyed my time there.
Advance Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 12, 2017
I worked in the receiving inspection department. I contacted field engineers on a daily for customer returns. I would break down centrifuges. Management is great at this company. I would not say that there is any hard part for this job at all, but there is a lot of physical work which is a great thing. Best thing about the company is the management and the benefits.
Accounts Receivable Coordinator (Former Employee) – Brea CA – May 26, 2017
Great after all. I love to work there. I resigned because I have to relocated. • Process and report cash receipts, along with cash flow forecast schedule of incoming revenues. • Oversee credit card disputes and their resolutions. • Resolves collections by examining customer payment plans, payment history, credit line; coordinating contact with collections department. • Accomplishes accounting and organization mission by completing related results as needed..
No work/life balance, and managers are not willing to hear you out. They will send you home as they see fit to meet their numbers. hard to advance in your department, most managers will tell you not to even try. It is a drag coming to work everyday and not knowing what the future holds.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Minnesota – May 15, 2017
This company is really a stepping stone company. It is not innovative and uses out dated everything. People describe it as a "me too" company, they can't think of innovative stuff so they copy competitors. There is a really bad culture there, no team unity. The management in place is sad and weak, they are unable to fight for their directs. No matter the output employees are rated as meets most expectations, they don't even rate people meets expectations or higher any longer. There is no development, nothing of substance that could be put on a resume. Advancement is rare, you have to apply for different positions to move up. it is rare to be promoted. There is no accountability and no one gets fired so there are a lot of incompetent people causing damage to the companies product quality and reputation. I think it is an ok first job but not a place to stay for too long.
Stable, great work life balance
Poor management, no innovation, no growth and development, and no accountability (they don't fire anyone)
I love to work at beckman coulter as I was luckily worked with a wonderful and supportive team. All the members in our team are very helpful and always be there for you to ask for help. My manager is a wonderful leader and he is always very patient and considerate and very supportive!!
Senior Quality Engineer-Contract (Former Employee) – Chatsworth, CA – April 10, 2017
Poor level of collaboration, and the company is dominated by fear of failure and strong dominating and arrogant personalities. I have nothing good to say about this employer, but some of my coworkers were great people.
