I worked at Life Technologies as an intern (Less than a year)RecommendsNegative OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsNegative OutlookApproves of CEO
The intern program is GREAT. Paid holidays off, independence and freedom in the workplace (no micromanagement AT ALL), free company clothing/gear, great atmosphere, very nice employees who are kind to interns, great perks, intern events (lots of time to bond with other interns, we all became friends), excellent pay. Senior managers are also very kind and open to helping out. Many interns loved their stay in San Diego, because the work/life balance allows you to also enjoy the amazing summer weather outside of work and socialize with other friends/interns. I assume things will contract a bit though, due to the Thermo acquisition.
The only con I can think of was my manager. My day-to-day supervisor/mentor was truly amazing (as were 99% of the employees I met there), but my manager was never to-be-seen. I think I just got stuck with a lackluster one, because other interns seemed to love theirs.
Advice to Management
Give clear instructions and voice your expectations. How will employees know what they need to accomplish, without you expressing it to them?
