    I worked at Applied Biosystems

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to gain exposure to different organizations and technologies. Generally a good place to learn the industry and best practice for product development.

    Cons

    Lots of jockeying for position in management. Focus on short term fixes rather than long term success. Moving up often requires movement between organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much strategic planning and not enough execution of the plans. Employees are more than willing to strive for success, but need consistent guidance rather than rolling 6 month re-orgs.

    I worked at Applied Biosystems

    Pros

    Great place, if you are just wanting a job. That's all it is. Keep your head down, don't try to improve things, careful not to step on anyone's toes. Expect nothing. Just. Do. Your. Job...and you will be rewarded with very good pay and standard benefits and even an opportunity for bonus. The sales force is amazing to work with.

    Cons

    The worst career advancement opportunities, ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equally and careful not to condescend. I wasn't treated this way, but I witnessed it.
