    Pros

    always something to do, clear direction from supervisors, foot in the door in the science field

    Cons

    Thermo Fisher is buying everyone out. They bought Life Technologies and are moving the Brown Deer site's production to California. A bunch of people lost their jobs because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge that more than one person could be a fault when a mistake happens.

    Pros

    Great environment and the people are friendly. Salary and benefits offered for the position were fair. Given time off from work due to family tragedy.

    Cons

    Little opportunities in advancement in this field at Life Technologies. The management was not very helpful at times during my time there.
