    Pros

    Once was a very enjoyable work environment

    Cons

    If you are not a managers goofier your doomed. Long term employees are dismissed with no reasonable reason and forced to sign a disclaimer to not sue or in some cases never apply to another Thermo Fisher Scientific organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the employees and react to some of there dislikes in a positive manner verses laying them off.

    I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits, with reasonable hours (at least for my team). I liked the people I worked with. The application domain (Gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer) was very interesting. Profitable and stable company.

    Cons

    Software is still an appendage to hardware. software teams are splintered into small teams for each hardware line. Some poor coordination and mutual distrust between sites. Lots of process and politics to get anything done. Much energy was expended on looking good in meetings and to bosses. In process terms, they combine the worst features of agile and waterfall development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consolidate software organizations and appoint technical architects with the authority to kill bad products and force use of common standards and software. Hire some experienced, successful software leaders and really implement agile. Software teams need the power to refuse unreasonable requests. Cut back on meetings. Be realistic in estimates and scheduling.
