A biotech powerhouse that offers solid development opportunities and competitive benefits/compensation.

Systems Engineer II (Current Employee)
Foster City, CA

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementLife 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).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
