    ProsGreat Company. Business Unit Model of a Matrixed Organization. Lean Process. Smart and Friendly coworkers

    ConsCompeting priorities between BU and Corporate. Limited resources to impliment long lasting changes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to work on total rewards system, hire new employee's so that the company is not so lean.

    Look elsewhere if you are looking for a company to move up in

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsThe people that you work with are in the same boat as you, so it's nice to have someone to gripe with but keep in mind, this is a call center.

    ConsPathetic company luncheons, minimum to no raise, micro managing, company work ethic of "squeezing blood out of a turnip" with the amount of work that you are expected to complete between phone calls for minimal pay, benefits sucks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more people to keep up with the work load and show some employee appreciation. Don't brag that you as the vice president make way more money than your peon poor workers that you "Don't have to worry about gas prices".

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to make great money.

    Sales Representative (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsThermo Fisher has so many different divisions that you can move within the company while keeping longevity with one company.

    ConsSome, and only some, of the management needs additional training.

    Think Long and Hard Before Taking a Job Here

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsVery good health benefits package

    ConsRead the book "Snakes in Suits;" it is a good overview of what things are like here. There is definitely and old boy/old girl network in place, and the only way to move up in the company is through nepotism, dishonesty, or brown nosing. *LOTS* of micromanagement: expect to have to fill out reports, memos, etc. constantly. Even though the benefits are good, the pay is way below average.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop focusing on metrics to the exclusion of all else

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
