Company Culture

Typically positive

Support from management

Leaders recognize how processes and procedures should be but their focus is on revenue. Change is hard.

Teamwork

Associates generally tend to work together to meet goals. Management gets involved when delays may affect revenue or if additional immediate revenue can be obtained.

Freedom to work independently

Work is fairly distributed but Leica believes in running lean so there is a lot to do. End of month is always highly pressured to bring in as much revenue as possible. Leica has 12 end of years annually.

Internal Communication

Poor communication from executive team. The V and C levels communicate but but they say is rarely based in fact and promises are rarely fulfilled. They talk about wanting change but they refuse to support change.

Office / Work Environment

High Pressure

Environmental Friendliness

They try

Work-Life Balance

Because of the lean environment and aggressive deadlines balance interferes with success.

Challenging Work

Always has fires to put out... generally due to the lack of willingness to learn from previous experience and change

Suggestions for improvement

  • Take the associate feedback given and change.

What I like about the company

Leica Biosystems is a great company to work with. I thrived under the challenges of being a part of the startup company that was purchased by Leica. I was given many opportunities and I made extraordinary contributions. As a result, my responsibilities grew.

What I dislike about the company

Leica Biosystems lacks leadership willing to listen to front line associates or learn from past mistakes. They continue to follow failed plans.
