An "interesting" place to have worked or Caveat Employee
Bioprocess Applications Specialist (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY – 30 November 2014
My typical day at work involved trying to hammer out customer issues, channel questions and develop training methods, leads and presentations. Sometimes there was too much work and sometimes not enough.
I traveled for part of my work and it was difficult to get equitable treatment and consistent applications of policy. Don't count on being treated with respect in terms of your travel time. They once tried to get me to fly out AM redeye and back PM redeye, halfway across the country to save $100.
I learned a ton about bioprocess applications , working in the field, business side operations, high tech capital sales and meeting customer needs.
I had some great co-workers, especially the team at DASgip, folks in the Enfield Applications Lab, and the Global director of Eppendorf Bioprocess.
I honestly hope they(Global Eppendorf) do the smart thing and clean house at Eppndorf North America (Hauppuage) or sell the Bioprocess business outright to Pall. Losing a vital chunk of their sales and applications teams for bioprocess and automation communicates volumes about their [on-going] difficulties. This is just constructive criticism, not disparaging them for not knowing how complex Bioprocess markets and projects are.
I learned a lot and got to network across the international bioprocess community.
I learned a lot, especially to always get offer letter bonus and commision terms in writing.
