I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The health benefits are wonderful and coworkers are great people, who are very under-appreciated by management.

Cons

You work very hard and are not appreciated by management.
The raises leave very much to be desired - not even enough to come close to match yearly inflation.
Management doesn't communicate or even seem to care about their employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are very good management courses on-line, please take them.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific

    Pros

    *work life balance in some roles
    *One of the best pay for HR folks. HR is the most powerful function in this company. They benchmark their salaries to highest levels of industry.
    *Job stability. If you are not ambitious, you can keep doing the same job for 20 years. They wont fire you.
    * No up or out policy. No forced curve fitting.

    Cons

    *Poor pay for internal promotions and level if you are below director level.
    *Prefers to hire external candidates at higher pay than promote capable internal candidates with similar raises.
    *Very Frugal employer- Corporate office is pathetic; Pittsburgh office is newly built and represents the legacy of Fisher Scientific.

    Pros

    The sales reps I worked for are great people. It started out rough, but they actually care about how I'm doing and they did a wonderful job of mentoring me.

    Cons

    Definitely not very many opportunities available after my internship.
