Current Employee - Vice President COMMERCIAL in Carlsbad, CA
Current Employee - Vice President COMMERCIAL in Carlsbad, CA

I have been working at Life Technologies full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

This is not for the feint of heart - this is a competitive company where hard work and smart people tend to make the difference. It's not always fair but in the end the company is always driving to move forward in an exciting field(s) - which is all I ask for out of my employer to keep me happy. There's some great people here.

Cons

There's too many "idea people" which results in too many things to do and the cycle never seems to stop. If you can say no, you'll be fine. People who feel a need to always please are in trouble as you'll never please everyone here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Well - good luck as TMO seems to be much different. I think a lot will change.
