    Pros

    the culture is very numbers driven. There are always opportunities with frequent new additions to the Company

    Cons

    the top leaders are not very inspirational/ There is a cookie cutter town hall approach where leaders don't deviate from the script

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    distribute the bonus's more towards middle management getting the job done vs. the top of the company

    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 Disappointing that web site is still so outdated and hard to use after such big investments in it -- reflects badly on company.
