    Pros

    * Wonderful peers in my business area with highly collaborative spirit
    * Cutting edge technologies are fun to work with

    Cons

    * Too many organizational changes (starting long before the Thermo Fisher acquisition) make it difficult to gain traction with direct manager who is often key to career growth and promotions
    * Leaders centralize decision making to high levels of the organization, making it difficult for employees to make a positive impact on the company's strategy
    * Managers often seem to be more interested in gaining power than doing the right thing for the business
    * Short-term focus on financial results often leads to failure to capitalize on longer-term strategies or to put the customer first in the business relationship
    * Divisions are more apt to compete with each other rather than collaborate to create innovations, which is at odds with the stated culture of the company
