Working at Beckman Coulter was never boring. Working on 5 different projects I found my fellow employees collaborative. Management did an excellent job in focusing the employees on common, consistent goals.

Good Company but limited potential to advance

Beckman Coulter offers stability, but, a limited potential to advance my career. I work with many good people, but, management employees outdated techniques. This leads to frustration as I'm unable to make a change.
Pros
Benefits, salary and flexible hours
Cons
Limited meaningful training, outdated management philosophy, poor prioritization of projects

Senior HR Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Chatsworth, CAJanuary 26, 2018
This is a good company to work for but has gone through many management changes in the past 4 years. Many restructures. Benefits are great including 3 Volunteer Time Off days a year in addition to the standard Med/Den/Vis/Life?401K.

I would recommend this company as a decent place to work.

Poor leadership and no strategy
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Brea, CAJanuary 24, 2018
There's been a constant turnover of leadership so there is no direction and strategy for the struggling company. Therefore, employees do not understand their role and there is no job security

Customer Feedback Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Hebron, KYJanuary 12, 2018
I worked at Beckman Coulter through a Temp Agency. I resolved customer complaints by finding ways to improve our processes.
The atmosphere was friendly and collaborative but still allowed for an independent working experience.

TECHNICAL WRITER II (Current Employee) –  Chaska, MNJanuary 5, 2018
It's not a bad company, it's just that there's only so much room for people to grow. There are a lot of great people at Beckman, many of them are in functional management. The difference between "Daily Management" and "Micro Management" should be investigated further in some groups.
Pros
Great people and friends
Cons
Lack of common sense. There is no easy button here.

Review is two-headed: first I was FTE , returned as consultant
Sr. Regulatory Affairs Specialist (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLDecember 27, 2017
Typical work day was doing same paperwork over and over with different products interspersed with more meetings than available time due to overloaded specialists. Leaves no time for strategy to be developed resulting in reactionary work products.Modern public companies have turned successful model offered by good private companies on its head. Coulter brothers said "People count!" and meant it. If you make employees happy and meaningful, they make customers happy which creates more sales and more customers as well as loyal employees. Modern philosophy is that stock holders must be pleased first, employees are expendable and customers are random result of reacting to stock price. Net result is dreadful customer service universally. hardest part of job was knowing we could improve efficiency if we had time for planning. Most enjoyable were fellow employees helping each other in face of lousy corporate strategy.
Pros
Generally cooperative employee culture
Cons
Seeing loss of customers due to poor customer service and de-valuing employee welfare
