Pros

Dynamic environment, cutting-edge technologies, strong teams, and clarity of vision help make Life Technologies a great place to develop a career. Life Technologies is doing some very exiting things with cloud computing, application delivery, bioinformatics, and big-data analysis.

Cons

Fast paced environment, this is not the place to work for people who like to keep a static routine or are unwilling to learn new technologies and modern processes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the vision, focus on delivery.

    Pros

    On average, the company seems to care about personal and professional development. There were opportunities to move horizontally to expand your skill set and they do a good job of training where they utilize there own learning curriculum or sending you to third parties.

    They also have a really nice gym on the main campus which is great.

    Cons

    The work/life balance can be challenging at times. Upward career progression is difficult. When I was there, they cut some of the benefits and really increased the cost of certain coverages.
