Big Company with Potential
Director of Marketing, Infection Control (Current Employee) –  Bethlehem, PAJanuary 7, 2019
B. Braun Medical is one of the largest privately held medical companies in the world. They are over 180 years old. Because they started in Germany, it is a very European culture with the mindset that products good enough for Europe should work great in the USA. Very little understanding of the US market leaders and customer needs in this country.
I have been able to work with them to modify products, labels, and other details to compete with the market leaders who have 30 years of legacy and 70% market share in the US. The most difficult part of this is educating legal, regulatory, engineering etc. to make necessary changes to allow the products to have a chance. While most projects took much longer than expected, when completed, it was very satisfying to see the products gain market share, whether branded B. Braun or Private Label.
Pros
Independence, Create own work schedule
Cons
Lack of internal support (sales, corp accts etc.)

Toxic environment within QC Microbiology group
QC Microbiologist (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAOctober 17, 2018
QC Microbiology management does not have a strong background in technical Microbiology and management skills. All she is doing every day is chatting, playing politic within the group, trying to team up with HR representative to get rid the one she does not like or the one that dare to speak up. It is a toxic environment within QC Microbiology group (Environmental Monitoring, Sterility Testing, PM...). She is hiring or promoting non-qualified personnel to protect and support her. Terrible QC Microbiology Manager I ever seen or experienced.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Management problems
