I worked at Life Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

-My group of coworkers had a lot of characters in it
-Good Work life balance, do your work and you will have plenty of time for yourself outside of work

Cons

-Extremely political with anyone at or above a manager level
-Benefits package was average, they were definitely not trying to lead the curve in that area
-If you got stuck with a bad manager, it could ruin your career prospect (that can be said about anyplace)
-Many technical people are promoted to middle management positions with little to no social/people/management skills

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It seems like management is being advised by harvard graduate consultant types with little or no knowledge of the biotech industries.
