    Pros

    They had some good products, including the best anti-HLA antibody detection products on the market.

    Cons

    Very poor innovation, before and after acquisition by ThermoFisher Scientific. Also, management is cheap, so salaries are not very good. The main product line is the only thing keeping the company afloat.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so cheap. Hire some new PhDs at competitive salaries, and be more collegial in your interactions with them.

  2. Much Better before becoming Corporate
