Leadership at Fisher is like an eagle - yep, they don't have them either

Manager (Former Employee) Allentown, PA

ProsGood health care benefits and 401k. Has the potential for good leadership. Has sufficient systems in place to manage effectively. PPI

ConsFew, if any of the programs in place to encourage professional development are used effectively. Core values poorly describe the leadership style and are not embued through upper management and they do not trickle down, so leadership is left to the individuals in charge, which can vary INTENSELY. Fisher has no concept of principled leadership. Treatment of employees is downright unfair and imbalanced, again, depending on the leadership ability of the manager in charge. Cliquish pods of managers and directors result in lack of uniform treatment of employees, poor communication, rumor mongering and poor judgement. Annual reviews are done with no consistency across the comapny. PPI is an effective tool, but it is not used effectively. It is just one more thing to keep people looking busy and productive, which is typical of Fisher. As someone said..."lots of silos". Lots of initiatives that go nowhere because everything starts with a great idea but gets no support and it fizzes out...sometimes wasting money, costing jobs and confusing everyone.. Individualism, CYA and professional competition for positions, power and prestige dominate over teamwork, leadership and corporate vision.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet professional leadership training in the upper ranks. An MBA or 15 years in Pharma does NOT make you a leader. Learn what it means to truly work as a TEAM. Squash the individualistic skull crushers who do anything to make a splash at the cost of others.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lots of silos, lots of re-orgs

    Senior Product Manager (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time for less than a year
