Pros

Many internal job opportunities in many parts of the world; some good corporate-wide resources; reasonable compensation and benefits.

Cons

Huge size of company makes communication challenging, interferes with sense of team. Bureaucracy is annoying for people used to working in smaller companies. Immediate brainwashing & rebranding of acquired companies leaves employees feeling devalued. Overweighting of product portfolio in one high-capital business area (Mass Spectrometry) makes company vulnerable to competition and to fluctuations in MS markets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Efforts being made to improve communications between employees have been good moves, but must be kept up constantly to keep everyone working together. Need to provide real incentives for employees to work together across divisions. Disappointing that web site is still so outdated and hard to use after such big investments in it -- reflects badly on company.

    Practice what you preach. And do what you say you are going to do. Make people accountable.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, good benefits, reasonable pay, flexibility, strong financial outlook and a lot of potential to grow

    Cons

    The companies under Thermo Fisher do not have a strong connection to each other creating a lot of dysfunction. Senior level management disjointed-changes frequently. A great deal of politics to deal with on a day to day basis

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a solid foundation for all the companies under the umbrella to create strong momentum and value for the customer. Be open to new ideas and structures that promote profit, productivity and overall success for all.
