    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement program is awesome! Good benefits. Salary okay. It is a stable job and co- workers are fun to work with. You will learn a lot on the job.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are difficult to obtain and rely mostly on networking or just lucky timing (nobody wants it or they need it filled fast) Internal job openings - they will let you know they have someone already in mind so why apply. Asking upper management for advice on how to advance they will tell you - "Well, you may have to look elsewhere to gain the experience, we don't have the capacity to train".

    Advice to Management

    Yearly Performance Management Development plans - please have those plans be a road map to actually get somewhere instead of being something that just have to be turned in on time.

    Pros

    The people are great go work with. That's mainly the best thing they have going for them.

    Cons

    Pay is not great. You're treated like a number. Even though sales are great, pay remained very low. Getting anything changed takes a very long time or are told that they don't not have the resources to accomplish the specific task. Products in high backorder. Need more manpower.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being called to so many meetings and work on bettering your staff

  3. Stable job but poor pay for work required.

    I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most people are friendly, very stable industry, I've learned a lot here.

    Cons

    Terrible raises, if you can get 1% consider yourself lucky. Constant changes, while sometimes improve processes, make it very hard to do your job.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your good employees better before you lose them.
