I do not even know where to start here… I was laid off in 2011, the business climate was dismal and employee morale was low. I think around 5 people were let go around the same time, some kind of cost cutting was involved, but the whole story did not make sense. An advice for prospective new employees – you will notice that there is a LOT of micro managing at VWR – sometimes it’s good, most of the time it really sucks and kills employee morale. No transparency and clarity to mid-level managers and lower level employees – cannot create strong teams that way – the organization suffers and that’s rampant at VWR regardless of hire/fire cycle. Also note, that our warehouse employees are sooooo important to the company, why do not management make sure the other departments (sales, admin, supply chain, accounting, etc.) understand the warehouse processes so they can support our business appropriately – you will find at least 50% people in our IT group who have NO CLUE what we do (I should really put this in past tense as I am not with VWR anymore. Finally, there has to be some kind of better way of training resources as employee attrition is too high. Finally, RESPECT THE INDIVIDUAL – VWR is lacking in this department, while some old timers are pretty good here, there is a bunch of newer employees who do not care about their peers. The situation will improve, if management can push these changes, 2014 will be a challenging year for VWR regardless of the changes that are implemented.
