Bottom of the barrel
Specimen Processor (Current Employee) –  Elmhurst, ILJanuary 12, 2018
If you need a full time job with little to no experience this is the place. The culture is terrible and I’ve watched people purposely sabotage others, this includes management. There’s little room for advancement, and the hours are terrible. It’s a dead end job that has a high turn over, and almost everyone is miserable there. But if you need a quick in between this could work, but absolutely not a long term or career type of job.
Pros

a typical day at work with idexx
Courier (Former Employee) –  Washington, PAJanuary 10, 2018
a typical day at work with idexx is you have a set start time and you have to get to each stop at a timely but safe manner . you are in total control of your day and how it goes, I really enjoyed being my own boss but making money as a typical employee would,

clean and orderly (Current Employee) –  Worthington, OHDecember 17, 2017
I have been with Idexx for about 14 years now and still going strong. A lot of great team work and a lot of opportunities for growth advancement. It can be very challenging but with great focus and team effort it can be pulled off in a timely manner in releasing great results to clients on time. I enjoy a lot of the great benefits that come with this company.
Pros
free lunches

short staffed

Good benefits; management needs improvement
Medical Technologist (Former Employee) –  Glen Burnie, MDDecember 4, 2017
The benefits are really good and pay not bad. However, the management is not very good. Positions promised that you will never get. If you throw people under the bus you stand a better chance of getting a better position. They will work you to death and not much of a break. Overtime hours are expected and extra work not appreciated. Current manager makes for an unpleasant work environment.
Pros
Benefits, experience
Cons
Manager, little or no breaks, overworked daily, unfilled promises

Data Services Specialist II (Current Employee) –  Eau Claire, WINovember 24, 2017
Idexx is a good company to work for, there just is not any room for growth or advancement in the department that I work in. The job also involves a lot of sitting and staring at a computer screen all day long.

I enjoyed the job itself, tremendously. it was fun especially if you love animals.
Driver's Helper (Former Employee) –  Worcester, MANovember 24, 2017
I worked under the table. My roommate was elderly but needed to work so he was the real employee. He drove while I did the rest of the work. The manager knew and was fine with him. But the manager took the work from workers in which they needed and did himself paying other employees to put the hours in their pays so he wouldn't get in trouble. It had its ups and downs
Pros
meeting new people and visiting the animals.
Cons
no breaks and no benefits or vacation.

Great company, tough to advance
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Westbrook, MENovember 9, 2017
The company is probably the best total package in Maine, but hard to move up or change roles. The rest of the company is very different from the Customer Support/Inside Sales and would provide a lot more flexibility in scheduling. Additionally, salaries in other departments are more commensurate with experience.

Specimen Processor/Lab Assistant II (Former Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLNovember 1, 2017
This was a temporary job and most all of the employees were awesome to work with, the only problem I had was a supervisor who felt threatened by my quick advancement. I would definitely recommend this job to someone who I felt was qualified.

Varying work, goes from high pressure and fast paced to very slow towards the end of the shift. Management is terrible in our area but not necessarily in every department. Excellent benefits, enjoyable coworkers. Like most things in life, is as good as you choose to make it.
Pros
Excellent benefits, regular breaks on the job, lots of PTO
Cons
