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

Pros

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

Cons

Hyper 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 ManagementAdvice

Invest 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!

    I worked at Life Technologies full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salaries seem to be above average
    Working for a company that's actually making a difference

    Cons

    Very US centric. Company has no idea about doing business in other regions
    Management has no respect for their workers
    Penny pinching at the expense of employees
    Bad culture comes from the top down

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with respect. Have a look at the culture from the legacy Applied Biosystems company and apply this to Lifetech.
