Good Place to work (stable)

Senior Scientist (Former Employee)
Shelton, CT

ProsGreat 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.

ConsFlex-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 Senior ManagementTake 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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
