Upper Level Management Needs to Communicate with Employees
Marketing (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – February 18, 2016
The work life balance is great here. Mid level managers are understanding of time-off and personal life. However, in order to be promoted, you need to set up a bed in your office an work around the clock. Upper level management does not provide clear communications on goals and plans for the company. Product releases are pushed out the door to meet sale quotas without first running checks to make sure everything is working as it should.
Principal Firmware Engineer (Contract) (Former Employee) – Billerica, MA – March 20, 2015
I was there for eight months. Learned much from the manager, highly recommend the other team members. Friendly and helpful environment, but we were there to work.
In the time I was there there were two barbecues and a Christmas party. Everybody got gifts (coffee cups, drink holders, etc) and items such as anywhere in CONUS plane tickets, $100 gift cards, etc were raffled off - and even contracters were in the pool!
Comfortable environment, friendly staff
A little disorganized, lack of planned progress goals
Chemist (Current Employee) – Fremont, CA – January 20, 2014
Bruker is a fine company to start at if you want to get experience in the quality engineering or chemistry business. Currently the company is very disorganized and logistics are a nightmare. Managers keep quitting or getting switched around. Hours keep getting changed and what was once a more lay-back company has become fixated on 5 sigma an optimization causing everyone to become tense.
Good work experince, nice people, good pay, good location
strict breaks, convoluted, unorganized, bad management
scientis (Current Employee) – Billerica – September 29, 2012
nice people, no one ever yells. lots and lots of disgruntal employee's common denominator: poor managment of employees, no guidance. Expect 2% raise, no more. not a great palce for engineers as all engineering is done in France, Swiss and Germany. good opps for scientis
