    Pros

    Great PKI people, innovative scientists and marketing people who listen.

    Cons

    After aquisition of Caliper in Nov.2011 management went into "CYA" mode, and even now, a year later, many of us are even more unsure of our future or our direction. Many of us lost products to other divisions and we have shrinking bags of products to sell to our customers and less support. Many look at a large company like PerkinElmer as a solid place to land. I am not so sure anymore.

    Advice to Management

    This is a good time to reassure your teams. Let us know what we are doing right, and how we can improve to retain our job in 2013. I have no doubt several of your reports are updating their resumes.

  2. Corporate trend has been to play for the next quarter instead of the next decade

    Pros

    Fairly solid company. Many intelligent engineers and some really great employees. Commitment to education is admirable. Great field service team. Warm and friendly working environment.

    Cons

    Lot's of red tape make getting things done that much harder. Very little innovation despite marketing claims.

    Advice to Management

    Trust employees a bit more. Outsourcing to get an extra penny for the stockholders is somewhat short-sighted.
