Featured Review

Current Employee - Marketing Specialist

I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time for more than a year

Pros

No company is perfect, but almost everyone I’ve worked with over the course of my time here has gone out of their way to help me any time I had a question or concern. Their benefits are great,... especially their Appreciate program, which allows employees to recognize their peers; I’ve never had that before. At previous companies, only executives had the privilege, so it was all about who you know. At Thermo, supervisors are encouraged to advance their subordinates careers; this is typically part of their annual goals (at least my division) so there is opportunity for growth and constant conversation around your career next steps.

Cons

I work remote, so I don’t experience too many cons. If any – and I’m reaching – maybe that because of the level of oversight for remote employees, some don’t pull their weight as much as others? But... their lack of work is apparent in their numbers at the end of the year, so it doesn’t typically have a huge impact on me.

Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at Gilead Sciences full-time for more than a year

Pros

If you have a good idea, you'll find there are resources to support it. It's really the only company I've worked at where this has happened. The benefits are great, within a year of working here,... my 401k was 12x higher than when I worked for a previous company for 2 years.

Cons

It's relatively new compared to other companies so sometimes processes don't exist.
