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

Pros

Bonus each year is good, PTO is very reasonable as well

Cons

A bit like high school. When colleagues don't like you and are in with upper management you're screwed.

    I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary for Manager level and above is decent. Very wide range of products.

    Cons

    Absolutely 100% focused on building shareholder equity. The problem is they are leaving behind or forgetting the employees and customer. The push to please Wall Street has cost them innovation and employee loyalty. All focus is internal and geared toward cost savings with no regard for employees or commercial operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change in top leadership is desperately needed, don't be fooled by the short term success.

    I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A transnational company that mandates a standardized process improvement training to promote understanding and communication among colleagues. This is extremely critical for a company that grows by merger and acquisitions.

    Cons

    Company adopts LEAN management like most companies. Consequently, projects are behind because of inadequate resources and unrealistic milestones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to maintain the industry leadership position in scientific instrument, Supply Chain should focus on quality not costs.
