    Pros

    Thermo has very few pros. The company's culture has changed so much over the past years that it is unrecognizable. It does have very dedicated workers who are trying their best in a corporate culture gone awry.

    Cons

    Thermo has changed over the years into a culture that eliminates individual contributions and encourages the corporate lockstep mentality. Every employee is looking over their shoulder, fearing reprisals. Don't let Human Resources fool you, they are not there to protect the employees, but rather to protect the company only. They will stretch the truth to the point it is unrecognizable, and put profit over everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize your employees are more valuable than your technology. Drop the idea of the 4 I's until you can follow them as well.

    Pros

    Insurance is good and some workers are good to work with.

    Cons

    Horrible desicion making and some supervisors rather be tyrants then be respectful or to listen to employee opinions. Leads are stuck on stupid and have no knowledge of the workplace and spend more time talking about other employees flaws then to rather fix them. It's shamfull that employees no more than the lead. Brownosing will get you far in this company and not being noticed for your hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees rather then thinking you know more than them.
