I have been working at Life Technologies full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Good collaboration atmosphere, good inter-team respect, new, clean building, cafeteria is amazing, yearly bonus, friendly people

Cons

Managers have a good-old-boy thing going on, pay for my position is below industry standard, annual reviews are a joke - worked my tail off this past year with no raise, little bonus, healthcare is not so good

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train your managers in leadership, management, team building

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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).
