    I have been working at Life Technologies full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic, always changing, opportunities for lateral moves are encouraged, smart people, opportunities to travel to different locations and relocate, culturally diverse.

    Cons

    Too many acquisitions, integration headaches, Oracle shop, benefits have been steadily cut over the years. If one is not in CBD or at Ion one would be pretty much worthless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try taking some lessons in empathy and please don't imagine that you can b.s as much as you do. Scientists aren't that stupid.

    I worked at Life Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Results driven , fast paced , opportunity to take global roles,

    Cons

    Poor recognition, expected to take no more without any rewards, poor ERP system integration leading to poor information . High pressure environment and you are a looser if you work only 8 hr days even if you accomplish your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need better long term vision . Invest in systems for better information. IT is the worst place to work in this company
