    I worked at PerkinElmer full-time (More than 3 years)


    Good flexibility, nice office environment and gym


    1) Terrible benefits. Health insurance is prohibitively expensive. Prepare to pay a high premium and that most everything out of pocket due to a high deductible, co-insurance and co-pays. PTO is stingy and doesn't carry over. 2) Miserable employees / corporate culture. I met with staff across the org and found predominantly overworked and frustrated employees struggling to thrive in a difficult work environment. It is extremely challenging to accomplish anything at PerkinElmer. You will exhaust yourself trying and then quit in frustration. There is a lack of leadership, and lack of staff to accomplish the goals set by upper management. The tendency is to try and do as much as possible with third party vendors despite a pattern of poor results. 3) High turnover, constant re-orgs. 26 people I worked directly with left in my short tenure and I went through four managers. 4) Priorities misaligned with execution. PerkinElmer perceives its focus to be on customers, innovation and quality but it fails to provide customers with what they are demanding and stifles the input of younger, newer hires opting instead to prioritize cost containment and time efficiencies. Driving shareholder value is all that really matters here.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to hire people with new ideas and fresh perspectives you need to support them with better managers.
