    I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots in innovation, cool products

    Cons

    Work in a silo. People are nice once you get to know them, but normally people don't branch out. Sometimes don't find out about other related projects until way too late.
