Manufacturing Engineer II (Current Employee) – Morrisville, NC – April 25, 2017
The headline says it all. I don't think Leica is a "bad" company but they are more worried about sales and revenue than they are their employees. Again this is an opinionated post so do your own research before taking a job.

Lot of layoffs happen yearly at this location. Usually around 20-30 people are cut each December. Management changes 2-3 times a year. Head office is located in Germany, they decide on advancement or headcount, and decisions are made swiftly. Office in Buffalo Grove is just barely hanging on at this point.

Field Service Engineer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 17, 2013
You would get dispatched to a job site, greet the customer gather information, fix the machine, test the machine and fill out the service report and ensure the customer is satisfied before leaving. The training was for specimen preparation devices, disease and cancer diagnosis equipment used in hospitals and laboratories all across the world. Management was very supportive, they would try to help you with anything you needed. Co workers were very good, we could always count on a co worker for help or assistance or just to answer questions. The hardest part of the job were some of the awkward spaces the equipment was placed and trying to work on it without interfering with the customers daily activities. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the smile on the customers face when you finished the job and they can use their machine.
The pay was decent, the work after you learned was not too difficult
