    I worked at Life Technologies as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Coworkers are awesome; we hang out outside of work
    - Always willing to hire recent grads with no work experience (for contract position)

    Cons

    - Management plays favorites
    - Rarely any opportunities for upward mobility
    - High turnover rate for contractors; they convert a max of 4 people per quarter depending on availability of positions
    - Make-to-order company, so business will get slow every now and then; contractors end up losing hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the leads decide on who should be converted. They're the ones that are actually on the floor and are able to gauge an employee's potential. Supervisors tend to convert the employees who go into their office and suck up to them, even if they don't work well.

    No opinion of CEO
