I have been working at Life Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Strong focus on product development and R&D. Decent (competitive) benefits.

Cons

Organizational changes can be more business/management focused and not always functionally relevant.

Advice to Management

Life Technologies has an incredibly strong (but still disjointed) product portfolio (Ambion, Applied Biosystems, Invitrogen, Ion Torrent, Gibco, etc.). Build more value for our customers by offering more integrated, complete workflows and solutions. Improve website functionality (better search, descriptions, product photos).

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Life Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Occasionally come up with great ideas, but they change direction and do the exact opposite of what the idea they came up with in the first place.

    Cons

    Same as above in Pros, but when they change direction/procedures they dont communicate to employees and have nerve to lecture/reprimand you for something they failed to tell you. Also very little compassion or concern for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to talk to your employees properly, stop treating temp employees like dirt.

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot while you are at job. There is never a dull moment. Life Technologies take care of well being of the employees.

    Cons

    Work life balance is at stake, people work for late hours. But, it is fun as well as challenging.
