"I have worked for Beckman Coulter for over 15 years. The job used to be fun, exciting, and challenging, but in a good way. Now the job is mostly challenging in a bad way. There is too much micro-management and not enough support for the team in the trenches."
"I only worked for Beckman Coulter for about 6 months. They are a PCB manufacturing facility in California. Their culture is somewhat mixed in that people have mixed emotions of how the company is really doing. Senior management doesn't look out for their employees and there is very little opportunities for advancement. As an Electrical Engineer, I was only expected to work 8 to 10 hours a day when in fact I was working between 16 to 20 hours to make sure customers were informed of their projects and boards. Senior management refused to give us more resources, which in turn meant severe burn-out and people having to take time off due to stress related issues."
"Too political, way too top heavy, not enough control at the department/division level."
"Good experience in working with this company."
"Worked at Beckman (fomerly Hach Co.) for over 14 years. Good benefits but have to constantly be requesting COLA to keep up with average salary."
"Beckman was a good place to work."
"Been with the company since the move from Polo Alto to Indianapolis. Was still in the manufacturing side, but after a couple years management progressively got worse. Management needs to be changed up and more informed with an ear to listen to take action on realistic goals from employees."
"Worked for Beckman for 14 years. It's been good but time for a change."
"I've worked for Beckman Coulter since 2009. I feel the company is solid with good ethical values."
"I've worked for Beckman Coulter for over three years. The people are lovely, you can always go talk to your manager, but nothing will ever be done. They seem to actively work to keep people from improving things or moving up and reward people for causing problems that they will look good fixing. If desperate, its a job. But even if you land it, keep looking elsewhere!Pay (raises and bonuses in particular) are far below industry standards."
"The past 4.5 years have been an uphill battle to put it mildly. We continue to overly complicate day to day activities and struggle with implementing quality remedies to our product lines. Field based employees in the service and support rolls are not trusted to do the right thing and have very little work life balance. Not enough field personnel to support our valued customers. One day I am optimistic upper management will figure that out."
"Too much game-playing and bad treatment and culture, lots of favoritism by management. Find better place to work is doing yourself a great favor."
"Referenced in to work in end user support in 2003. I designed and implemented Network-Shared drives, technical processes and procedures along with Information security assessment and vulnerability remediation. I have worked on systems security implementations and deployments with an emphasis on end-user and customer support. Collaborated with remote corporate sites to deploy standardized company assets during an employee exchange program."
"I have worked for Beckman Coulter for 3 years and after Danaher buyout, company is not what it used to be. Many changes, many for the worse."
