I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Regular performance reviews, good equipment and working conditions. Company well known, makes it easy to get into the door at new customers.

Cons

Products could be updated more frequently. Always just enough staff, often even too few. Sometimes problems with one product line or department spoil the company image for all other departments or product lines, which may have nothing to do with the root cause.

    I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific

    Pros

    Company provides great opportunities to those that seek them. The 4 I's are committed to at all levels of the organization.

    Cons

    Important to ensure that all members of the company are focused on the customer at all times - each decision / activity should help a customer.

    I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific as a contractor for 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.
