Pros

Competitive Pay
Nice People
Annual Quiche Breakfast
Well equipped gym
Company in good financial shape
Leadership seems sincere in effort to develop people

Cons

Health plan leaves something to be desired
Christmas party during the day - had to go back to work after

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consolidate the sites to save money / Sell IDS it doesn't fit in / call it a Christmas party not a holiday party stop being so politically correct

    I worked at PerkinElmer

    Pros

    Excellent scientific development team, with a keen focus on market needs and awareness of cutting-edge technologies to meet those needs

    Cons

    Poor understanding of non-instrument based sales and marketing, especially the need for application-based demonstration of new technologies' worth to users

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't build large scientific establishments and then lay off over 50 percent of the core workforce to finance marketing expansion

    Doesn't Recommend

    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
