I have been working at Life Technologies

Pros

Most people that work at Life are dedicated and engaged employees that are committed to helping each other professionally.

Cons

Executive management has been steadily shrinking/eliminating benefits for several years to benefit shareholders at the expense of employee morale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Short term financial gains won't help if the company has a brain drain in the future.

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Life Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good products. Good reputation. Hard working, talented operations and support teams.

    Cons

    Poor management. Poor communication. Very political (mucho brown nosing required to get ahead). Frequent re-orgs/layoffs with resulting low personnel morale and folks carrying more duties (with no additional comp).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open. Stop making advancement a zero sum exercise.
