Life balance job

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
If you want a life balance with job and can bear with dirty environment, this might be a suitable job you are looking for. A job which needs physical strength more.

Needlessly chaotic

Lack of trained chemistry personnel, improper/old equipment, and poor management jeopardize the important science done in this environmental lab. Very meaningful work made potentially unsafe. You can learn a lot of useful methods but everyone acknowledges its too chaotic and turnover is crazy.

Grosse boîte mais aucun avantage pour les salariés

Eurofins est un laboratoire qui gagne des milliards pas an mais ne donne rien aux salariés. Aucun avantage, seul la production compte. Le salaire est bas, les primes de temps en temps nous font restés mais au final on est est exploités

Nice but stressful

Eurofins gives you all the tools to learn and to grow. Colleagues are nice and the overall atmosphere is good, but it is always busy. If you don't have the sense of work-life-balance joining this company might affect you. Additionally, the management looks very closely into the educational profile.

Does not pay enough for the stress and pettiness.

I don’t even know where to begin. There are literally no standards at all to work here except that management “likes” you. If they like you, you’re in and you can do pretty much whatever you want without any regard for industry standards or general integrity. If they decide they don’t like you, you can expect a never-ending string of petty and mostly made-up grievances. Reasons they may dislike you include being qualified, taking regulations seriously, or aspiring beyond the specific role you were hired into. This is because they are underqualified for their own roles and feel threatened when that reality risks exposure. Keeping your head down and flying under the radar to get 6 months or a year of what can technically be called “experience” on a resume is your best bet here. It's experience on the most basic level though- everything is pretty much done for you and any science that might be involved in the job is completely removed. Additional responsibilities or accomplishments are not reflected in performance reviews, pay rates, or the way they treat their employees. In fact there is no accountability for anything you do, good or bad.The turnover rate in the last year has been 50%. Apply at your own risk.

Pros

No brainpower required

Cons

Petty, no room for growth

Starting Job for Non-Experienced Workers Only

Seriously run for the hills. This place is not worth it unless you are planning on getting experience and keeping your head down. Do not try to outperform management. The second you show your worth/skills, etc., you will be viewed as a competitor. Things are not done up to guidelines. If you are a serious worker and are a professional, this is not the place for you. The only plus was decent benefits - healthcare plan, other than that it was dreadful. The only compassionate manager that was supportive and actually wanted to help her staff left because she had a target on her back for being too educated, too professional, and honestly too good for this company.

Heureusement que l'ambiance entre collègues était très bonne.

Volume et vitesse de travail important. Très peu de considération de la part de la hiérarchie.

To many generalists

You are expected to generalize in every technology in IT. While your coworkers will be great people to work with, the job itself was severely lacking often resulting in doing mundane work a majority of the time even if your in a senior position.

Entry level lab job

It is a good opportunity for graduates to gain lab experience, and the salary is ok, however late-night finishings and the stressful, fast paced environment are big cons.

Pros

Ok salary, lab experience

Cons

Stressful, late nights, poor work-life balance

WARNING!!! Toxic Management and staff.

First of all from my experience, this place is no place for a person of color because they will treat you like trash!!! I should have known right from the start. Also, management and higher ups play politics and talk about issues rather than train you properly on how to fix it. It's like they want you to keep making the same mistake just for them to talk about it. Who does that?No chance for career advancement and opportunity to advance in that office.

Pros

Learn about Ontario Drinking Water Regulation

Cons

Toxic work environment, No chance for career advancement

Vooruitstrevend en uitdagende werkomgeving

Professionele, hardwerkend bedrijf met gemotiveerd personeel. Doorgroeimogelijkheden zijn er altijd & opmerkingen tot verbeteringen zijn welkom en worden zelfs aangemoedigd.

Only about the Profit

Management does not help you grow or seek out what your key strengths are. Employees are pigeon holed into myopic jobs, just to enhance productivity and profitability. Robots do not exist to perform these jobs, so they instead hire humans with high education, only to use them as makeshift robots in the name of profit. You will learn nothing working here, other than the boring, rote, and repetitive, fixated tasks of your specific job. Worse yet, it becomes harder and harder to leave after you're locked in, because other jobs don't quite bite at the narrowly focused skill set you will have developed.Bottom line, think very carefully before joining here. You could wind up in a very difficult and painful vicious cycle, wherein you learn nothing and plug and chug like a machine for years, all in the name of profit. When you try getting out, good luck because there's always somebody more qualified from a less narrow background...

Pros

EAsy job, can have some work/life balance

Cons

Super boring, not educational or innovative, just working like a monkey in the name of profit

Aprendi muito, pela grande pressão, mas é uma empresa com salário baixo e pouca valorização do funcionário

Catastrophique, à fuir!

Gestion de l'humain catastrophique. A peine plus qu'un numéro. Aucun sérieux dans l'organisation et la gestion du matériel. Salaire inacceptable pour le travail demandé. A fuir.

Variation in individual experience

Because Eurofins PSS provides a service to a client, separate from that of being co-employed, each scientist has vastly different roles. My experience was a slow start focused on far too much theoretical training, followed by meaningful and somewhat demanding analysis. Overall, this hybrid work situation was wonderful, and your client can truly make a big difference. Biggest cons: slightly below average wages for the area and very little PTO.

Pros

Group dynamic, client, use of skills

Cons

Pto, wages, employment identity
