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

    Pros

    Most people there value your contributions more than the time you spend at the office. The teams are very coordinated and connected; they communicate every step of the way. They trust you to work with high-level staff within a very short period of time. Very interesting and exciting body of knowledge with which to work.

    Cons

    Training was by documentation; the documentation was out of date, which we learned by spending time producing the wrong results.

    Advice to Management

    There's a relevant adage: "Most people don't leave their jobs--they leave their managers." Like in most work environments, some of the managers would benefit (and their teams would benefit) if they took management courses.
