Finance/Accounting Assistant (Current Employee) –  Billerica, maJuly 30, 2018
You get exposure to areas outside your skillset, giving you an opportunity to grow and develop your knowledge.

People are very friendly with the exception of a few crab apples that need to get weeded out.

Management is generally good over all.
Pros
Paid shut down week between Xmas and New Years
Cons
401(k) match is low

Upper Level Management Needs to Communicate with Employees
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Tucson, AZFebruary 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, MAMarch 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!
Pros
Comfortable environment, friendly staff
Cons
A little disorganized, lack of planned progress goals

Good starting job
Chemist (Current Employee) –  Fremont, CAJanuary 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.
Pros
Good work experince, nice people, good pay, good location
Cons
strict breaks, convoluted, unorganized, bad management

Good place to gain exposure and experience in large instrumentation manufacturing environment
Manager (Current Employee) –  Fremont, CaJanuary 6, 2014
Great products, 'some' great people, but lack of priority from top down drives inefficiency throughout the organization.

Priorities change every 5 minutes and are not clearly communicated from the top down. Success is difficult without working around the clock
Pros
Compensation and Benefits
Cons
Work life balance, clear direction from management, cross functional department accountability
