Design Engineer (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – April 18, 2013
I enjoyed my 15 years working at Beckman Coulter. I felt my contributions to the company were noticed and appreciated. I enjoyed the people I worked with and Administration was very understanding, but helped us to understand how we helped the company.
I would recommend this company for anyone to work for.
Technical (Former Employee) – West Sacramento, CA – November 9, 2016
I don't know how anyone can give this company a good review.
They gave me three projects to work on and told me to complete all three projects by a specific date. Much to my shock, they walked me out the door two weeks BEFORE the due date of the projects. I was 95% done with them - never got the chance to complete them.
I tried to get a reason for the abrupt, harsh treatment but all I could get out of them was something lame about how a first draft of a report was missing a trivial explanation (really, I would have had to read someone's mind to know to include the explanation). And, it could have been easily modified in less than 5 minutes.
Nice way to treat someone who gave 110% effort and did well on all previous work performances.
Most of the workers complain about the work environment. This company is definitely one to avoid. It seems like this company has an arbitrary policy of termination without justification.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Hebron, KY – September 15, 2016
I have worked for this company for a number of years. So far I have seen 7 of the staff pass away, Three new directors and only received a minimal raise (under one dollar). I have been passed over for promotions only to help train my new superiors and watch them celebrate their duties to others such as myself. The base pay is under 13 an hour starting out and after your probation you have to work two years before you receive any type of raise. The schedules change and are mandatory with no options. The set unrealistic goals and will only offer negative feel back. The communication is lacking in management and supervisors are clueless.
expensive healthcare packages, low if any raises given, revolving door temps
Administrative Assistant/Office Manager (Current Employee) – Hebron, KY 41048 – September 6, 2016
I enjoyed working at Beckman and working very closely with the management team up thru the Director. Communication is a difficult area as many departments do not always get information relayed to them concerning company activities and other things, Management is not always easy to talk to and be open with.
It defenitely has a great work atmosphere, people as well as co-workers and supervisors and managers are always kind. The only con I find in working at Beckman Coulter is the lack of opportunity to get promoted to other positions at the company or even get hired as a permanent employee.
Distribution Clerk (Current Employee) – Hialeah, FL – July 25, 2016

Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – Fullerton, CA – July 22, 2016
Decent company. I had no intention of staying even when I got hired so it's difficult for me to give a review. This was purely an opporunity to get some experience then move the next. The pay sucked, the benefits okay. Good work life balance though
Receptionist I (Former Employee) – Chatsworth, CA – June 26, 2016
On a typical day at work I would arrive on time, turn on the lights, and prepare the front desk, guest log, and badges for the day as well as retrieving badges while making sure the phone was always answered and that calls were directed to the appropriate extension.
I prepared outgoing mail sorted incoming mail and handled postage.
lots of free food, calm mid-fast paced environment, friendly professional team
Field Service Engineer (Current Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – June 25, 2016
Travel to different customer sites to provide service on instrumentation. Install and maintain analyzers The hardest part of this job is the traveling and working late hours as well as the on call schedule.
SENIOR DEVELOPMENT SCIENTIST (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – June 8, 2016
The hardest part of the job is maintaining a work life balance. Working for industry is hard because of all of the urgent deadlines and rapidly changing priorities. If you thrive with constant change and lots of multi-tasking this environment can serve as a great opportunity for learning competitive skills and gain cross functional industry experience.
Productive fun workplace, ecellent work environment, great hours.
