Bio-Rad LSG: Why doesn't anyone here talk about it?

Have they become that irrelevant in the industry, or are they that perfect?

"LC is a big phony and as

"LC is a big phony and as worthless as a white crayon. What does this guy actually contribute? Seems to have plenty of time to walk around, talk, and drink coffee."

He is networking with his future friends in hell.
No matter what religion these BioRad managers have, they will go to hell eventually. They need LC to support them in hell as well.

This company do not care

This company do not care about their employees. The Sch.., CC of HR, CT, WB, KB (IT) are ruthless. Need I say more?
LC of HR is the biggest sleazeball ever. Two-faced jerk. He's a complete tool for bad managers.

Must be John L. - Eastern

Must be John L. - Eastern Area Manager. Total asshole.

"Aren't we all

"Aren't we all resources?"

Obviously a green weenie employee since this is exactly how you are treated, don't expect anything more. In other news, Manboobs Embarrasses Again During Customer Visit. Can't you wear appropriate attire, you slob, you are an embarassment in front of customers. Both apearance-wise and knowledge-wise, I'll note that in SF.com.

Aren´t we all only resources

If all you want to do is collect a paycheck, then it is the ideal place for you to work. Don't expect much more. Prob a good job straight out of uni. If you are a follower and not leader, then go for it, you'll prob fit right in. Wishing you luck if you are in the MW or EC regions.

Look at the job postings for

Look at the job postings for assays. Who exactly is running the place since there is no one in charge of manufacturing or R&D for immunoassays in LSG right now? I'd hate to be ordering bioplex assays right now. Who knows what quality you'll get.

I am planning to move to

I am planning to move to Canada from Bio-Rad
Italy. can someone tell me how is the R & D in Canada? Do they have good managers there?

""ONE technician make

When the 10 so-called support people are not able to sell any products then almost don't need a production person.

No! SELDI is doing well. Its management still get bonus this year, and has application centers on east coast as well as Europe.

It's a great investment.

"Bio-Rad China only got 65%

"Bio-Rad China only got 65% of the plan at 2011 Q1. Why? They let the distributors bought too much at Dec. 2010. They cheated global, they gave the fake sales number at 2010. A lot of shippment went to the distributors inventory, not to the end user. As usual, they falsified the data of service installtion report with end user signature."

They used to have a management with good integrity, those already leave the company after they see the truth of this company. No Hope!

Can't you surmise from the posts what a great place this is to work?

Still need.
Nobody dare to declare that the $30 million investment end in nothing. And it's fine for this $30 million loss to grow into $40 million, then $50 million. This is part of Bio-Rad culture.

What is going on with

What is going on with Bio-Rad? Why people leaving? Suddenly there are two job openings in Chicago, is it because of bad management or bad product?

That's Bio-Rad standard practice else where too.

"At Bio-Rad LSG the idiots

"At Bio-Rad LSG the idiots run the group. I dare you to name one smart move they've made in the past years."

Bought SELDI. This move helped to wrote off millions of assets from book. And keeping Americans employed by running the SELDI business unit with only ONE technician make products, TEN or more other folks "supporting" this guy in marketing, R&D, QC, management, software, etc.

"In all of their quarterly statements they are always talking about how great their PCR business is. Didn't they buy a PCR company several years ago? Was that successful?"

Bueller? Bueller? Anyone? Inquiring minds want to know if the dare has been met.

I heard that a lot of China

I heard that a lot of China talent people left Bio-Rad China, because the managers only liked flattering person, no matter they were qualified or not.

"Lack of PhDs in

"Lack of PhDs in manufacturing is not a problem. If you are a PhD and you are in manufacturing, you're an idiot.
Not true. PhDs are required in manufacturing of complex assay products if the company wants to deliver consistent, high quality product. You don't need a PhD to fill tubes or put sheet metal together.
There are some manufacturing groups in Bio-Rad that desperately need some PhDs because R&D transfers product to them and then they can't manufacture it because the skills are not there."

Well said, that's why BioRad products are crappy. The real idiots are top management. They are sutpid and greedy.

"Why does the hatred for

"Why does the hatred for Bio-Rad run so deep? Are they really this crappy? At any large company there will be ineffective managers, bad products/production problems, and deadwood sales people that blame others for their short comings. Still need to ask at BR, how widespread are these problems? Does anybody have anything good to say about this company?"

It seems most of compalins are coming from LSG. CDG is in better shape.

"No offense, but from this

"No offense, but from this comment I don't think you have the capacity to make that judgment."

Will the gel box China outsourcing thing be an example of manufacturing's lack of engineering / development capacity?

Tony Tan is one. What a jerk he is."

That guy speaks poor English, his PhD might from Japan or so.

"They are irrelevant in the

"They are irrelevant in the life science tools market. Long ago eclipsed by Lifetech, Sigma, Millipore, et al."

So what is relevance then? Is relevant a technology leader, growing sales, profitable? In what technology are Lifetech, Millipore or Sigma relevant? I don't know the industry that thoroughly but I do know that Illumina appear to be leading in sequencing, Millipore -- in what technology do they dominate. I buy chemicals from Sigma..what else do they have?

"It seems half of folks

"It seems half of folks working at manufacturing can't even speak English. There is not a single PhD working there. Basically, they are only capable of producing craps designed by inexperienced R&D team."

So...how is it working in manufacturing?
