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

ProsInnovative products
Wide range of product portfolio which can cater to wide range of life science customers.
Excellent brand equity

ConsHyper active management. Many times come out itch half cooked strategy and therefore seriously affects customer satisfaction. Also employees are almost always over stretched in guessing the direction in which company is heading. Also expectations are almost always unrealistic!

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in innovative products development and launch only when it's really fully tested.
Bit only as much a you can chew!
Keep rewarding high performers, while be ready to invest in training & development.
Be lot more patient!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
