I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

Good team atmosphere, with permanent and temporary workers all included. Sharing ideas is encouraged. Lots of humour, some really fun personalities. Most vacancies are circulated internally first. Much more focus on solving issues than blaming individuals. A free weekly "happy bus" into Loughborough.

Cons

Policy says temps must be let go after ten months. Little long term opportunity for anyone outside the science/ lab background. Archaic systems in places, some of the work is very dull. Some "cubicle mentality". Many employees say "obviously" about twelve times an hour. Until Christmas 2012 everyone has to eat lunch in a tent (canteen space being used for a special project).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider whether retaining trained experienced temps for longer is worthwhile. Senior management could be a bit more accessible.

    I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Co-Workers, some of my peers are the best and brightest in the business.

    Cons

    Culture of management stifles innovation, lacks integrity. NO ERP, management says "TRUST US the numbers are correct, you don't need to see a sales report trust us." NO one is steering the ship in Molecular Biology, grasping at straws sales strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the culture, your sales force is afraid to speak up for fear of backlash, ideas get brushed off and no trust at the national level.
