More to life than closing factories in the US and setting up in China so you only have to pay workers $3 /week.

Go-to Guy (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsThe company produces great products and they are truly a leader in its field, and very good at what they do. They provide great innovations in science, and are on the cutting edge of scinetific discovery, whether it is genomics, proteomics, stem cell research, and even in heavy manufacturing, such as pretoleum refining, oil and gas exploration, steel manufacturing, coal mining and other industries. They started out as a holdign company, but in recent years, they have divested some of their businesses and focused more on their core business of life sciences. They are also looking to buy companies all the time.

ConsNot too well organised, too much infighting withing divisions, not enough direction from top management

Advice to Senior ManagementTry caring more about what's beyond next quarter's earnings. Where do you want to be in a year? 5 years? Help employees do better by providign a career path

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
