I worked at PerkinElmer

Pros

Great People, Strong Brand. They treat their employees with respect and allow you to share your input. Product development has quality built into it. Everyone seems happy to be at work, however.

Cons

Flex-time is non existent. alot of old-timers with no new visions. They are in desperate need of some fresh young blood to get the place pumping out great new innovative products. People are clock watchers, waiting to get out of work as soon as possible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take more risks, be a little bit more innovative. "Me too" mentality is going to make you some money, but it will not make you BIG money. Be the first at something, PerkinElmer has done this in the past, I'm sure it can be done again

    I have been working at PerkinElmer

    Pros

    Most of the people I have worked with were intelligent and professional. The product brand is well known and respected in the industry. Current president of LAS is a great leader and respected within customer circles.

    Cons

    Some people in leadership/management are stretched too thin with reporting to develop their direct reports. Many of the products sold are "me too" and were not the first to the market. Key investments are made that do not benefit all or a majority of customer markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and promote employees who deserve it. Find R&D projects that can produce a product for ALL customers big and small.

    Pros

    Good training provided, products from this company are of high quality and you can believe that the things you do will genuinely improve the lives of other people.
    Flexi-hours is also an added benefit.

    Cons

    Some employees may not be as enthusiastic which might hinder the progress of your project. But this issue isn't too serious.
