    Pros

    Lot's of differant ways to make money-such as manufactor promotions. For such a large company they try and listen to their employees and make effective changes.

    Cons

    Workload can be overwhelming, need to develop strong relationship with clients. Not enough administrative support, expected to sell and keep up on all the paper work. Meeting all your sales goals very dependent on territory, if you have a bad one you may never hit your commission. A lot of products to be familiar with, over 800,000. Very dependent on manufacture partners to get your clients what they want and that can be difficult to manage at times since your clients will be upset at you. Since you are overall responsible for your territory be prepared to work a lot of hours!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your sales staff for input.

    The long work hours without compensation and intimidating atmosphere is not the right way to treat employees

    Pros

    Thermo Fisher is a leader in science so the innovation that they bring to the world is critical to the well being of our earth and human beings. Wearing many caps on the job has certainly presented many challenges and is beneficial to the learning curve. Thermo Fisher has a very highly educated workforce which enhances the company's overall ability to succeed.

    Cons

    The employee base is not respected or treated fairly, the demand to get to the bottom line is the only thing that seems to drive this company and is a numbers game rather than a true dedication to the wellness of society am afraid to say. Simple communication lacks and power runs in the hands of only a few although most of the workforce is highly educated only a few have power. The atmosphere is rigid, disrespectful and abruptly unfair to the employees due to constant long grueling hours by running so lean. The company continues to layoff people and the folks left are pushed to the limit by overwork. There is little or no mentoring and they patronize employees and treat them like children with rewards of pizza parties and icecream. Being treated fairly and not worked to the bone would be more rewarding than some insignificant reward that they think people need when what they really need is a workout room,a luncheon with some healthy food and the chance for a balanced work/life. Thermo Fisher is not a fun place to work, and the employee base is made up of some really nice folks who come and leave work each day in fear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so lean; employees are not their best when so overworked and have to give up spending time with family. Mentoring needed; come on guys it is time to share and teach; when you do, you will get back much more than you give. Communicate, show compassion, and think twice about the US economy. I think Thermo Fisher should start reinventing itself as a US made company as well as global and start again investing in US soil. The continued fear of US site closings is a daily threat and with the cost of freight, lead time and other buried expenses how much is really saved? With a unique customer base selling among (itself) is it not time to start thinking about how Thermo could not only be a heathy/green company but how they could help restore the US economy issues and the jobless plight of America.
