    I have been working at Life Technologies as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice environment, nice people, good training systems (at least awareness to arrange different trainings to suit employees' / sometimes company's needs) , flexible time...In all, a place worth staying for one who's willing to follow the suit

    Cons

    Team-work spirit is not very high (at least in my team, everyone's good at just doing their part of job). Cross-department cooperation is not very effective due to poor communications. Manager's skills are yet to be developed. Salary is so-so, on par in the industry to say the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about how to really motivate employees as some tremendous talents are buried in daily routines.

    The Leadership of China is unexperienced. The global leadership is a very bad management.

    Pros

    This company has a lot of good products.

    Cons

    Currently, the global leadership don't know how to do a bigger business after Invitrogen acquired Applied Biosystems. The CEO is only purchasing for bigger business but doesn't know how to maintain the long-term business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The current global leadership is full of niave person and kiss-asses. They don't know how to respect a glorious businss which they never touched before and learn from it.

    Doesn't Recommend
