No opinion of CEO

I worked at Life Technologies full-time

Pros

Don't get me wrong, the people were kind.

Maybe this was just my department (software) but I found it very boring and non-collaborative. The cubicle environment was depressing.

Advice to Management

Work towards a more exciting environment.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of smart people working on cool projects, global roles abound. Decent compensation too

    Cons

    The CEO was telling employees one thing and doing another. No transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the scientists and engineers- they're the best asset.

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Life Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had a blast with the people I worked with in Pleasanton. The facilities we worked in we're new and very nice.

    Cons

    The pay was low and they pay hourly. I guess that's what you get for working in manufacturing. The environment wasn't very challenging and most of the time was boring. There isn't much incentive to stay with the company.
