Certified Grain Inspector (Current Employee) –  Wichita, KSFebruary 1, 2017
Working for Eurofins is certainly an adventure. One would expect it to be the same everyday but it isn't. Some days it is busy, other days there is hardly anything to do. One has to be willing to think outside the box to busy themselves on slow days. It teaches one to be responsible for their actions, thorough in their duties, attentive to other things that could be done and patient. I say patient because This company does not excel in communication, which makes it difficult to understand responsibilities and updates on protocol. Though, there are good benefits in this job which makes it worth enduring the lack of communication. The supervisor and co-workers are amazing and the work environment is dynamic, fun and unforgettable. There is never a dull moment in this place.
Pros
health/life/dental/401k
Cons
lack of communication, no advancement and low pay rate

Unorganized, overly complicated and un-rewarding
chemist (Former Employee) –  Portage, MIJanuary 24, 2017
Could be a grest company if management worked with employees. Your assigned career role doesn't really matter, you end up doing everyone elses job just so you can get your own job completed. Coworkers were great but was one of the most stressful, disorganized places i have worked. Only worried about company profit. Seems like even the simplest tasks are overly complicated.

Run, do not walk away from this company
Sample Registration Technician (Former Employee) –  Lancaster, PANovember 2, 2016
I worked for the Food Microbiology lab for over a year. I was promised a raise after 90 days and never received it. Later, I found out that no one has received any raises since they started. I wish that I could say that was the only negative about this place. They are understaffed, overworked, and underpaid. Morale is terrible, and nothing is done to help. 90% of the department has interviews elsewhere, they are just biding their time to get out of there. Employees are required to work overtime every single day until all work is finished. This would be fine, if they weren't understaffed, but it makes for extremely long days, no home life, and if you do leave on time one time you are written up even if you stay every other day. Management is terrible. There are so many issues with this place that they are too long to list. I have worked for 27 years and have never worked for a place so bad.
Pros
Benefits are okay
Cons
Almost everything

Run far away from this company
Research Scientist (Former Employee) –  Mebane, NCOctober 27, 2016
Management are inept at effective supervisory management, leadership and coaching. Good scientists, but very poor managers. As a result, you will be put into a "sink or swim" environment. During peak seasons, be prepared to work like a slave, as the critical mass of human resources is totally inadequate to meet the workload demand. Work outcomes/deliverables end up being substandard. Reputation among clients in the industry is poor. Pay and benefits are below average. Physical facilities are poor.
Pros
good co-workers (the entry-level ones)
Cons
poor management, inadequate critical mass, no work/life balance, poor industry reputation, poor pay/benefits, poor facilities

This place is terrible
Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Des Moines, IAJuly 21, 2016
Absolutely utterly terrible. Production going for quantity over quality work. terrible hours and worse mundane working conditions. More concerned about finishing as many samples as possible instead of accurate and reproducible results.

Research Scientist III (Current Employee) –  Lancaster, PAJanuary 28, 2016
Potentially unstoppable, but only if tuned, well lubricated, and mechanics are tightened up; the harvest will then be reaped.

Good People but overwhelming work
Support Technician (Former Employee) –  Folsom, CANovember 16, 2015
The management staff is an excellent staff. They will always be there for you and help you with anything. The work is continuous and sometimes overwhelming which allows you no breaks and late lunches. I think if there were more employees in support services that would not have been a problem. Overall the company is a good company to work for.
Pros

Cons
No breaks and overwhelming work

Terrible Environment!
NSC (Former Employee) –  Lancaster, PaNovember 18, 2014
Worked for Lancaster Labs in support division. Group leader was a joke. Their manager was too busy being friends with them to manage them or address issues. Team members were micromanaged, belittled, insulted and more. They rave about their work life balance and the awards they have own, but fail to tell you that was decade or more ago and the environment has changed drastically. If you are looking for a professional position rather than being just a robot, I would recommend someplace else. The pay for the work is far too low and you are only given respect if you are a favorite.
Pros
Can't think of anything
Cons
Management, HR, service center for the country but do not have technology or support to do anything productive, favoritism, hours, pay.

Lab Tech I (Current Employee) –  Des Moines, IANovember 6, 2014
Overall this is a decent job for someone who has just graduated from college. However the possibility for advancement is just not there and you become stagnant in your job pretty quick.
Pros
Good first job out of college, foot in the door kind of place.
Cons
We don't get to take breaks, negative atmosphere.
