Former Employee - Financial Analystaff Scientist in Carlsbad, CA

I worked at Life Technologies full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The ability to see all aspects of a product pipeline from licensing, IP, R&D, bus dev and marketing.

Cons

Felt like R&D was necessary evil for the business side, but that the value was not understood or leveraged.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more in R&D. Look to hire the best people, not just the ones you think you will retain.
