Pros

Most people that work at Life are dedicated and engaged employees that are committed to helping each other professionally.

Cons

Executive management has been steadily shrinking/eliminating benefits for several years to benefit shareholders at the expense of employee morale.

Advice to Management

Short term financial gains won't help if the company has a brain drain in the future.

    I have been working at Life Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good products. Good reputation. Hard working, talented operations and support teams.

    Cons

    Poor management. Poor communication. Very political (mucho brown nosing required to get ahead). Frequent re-orgs/layoffs with resulting low personnel morale and folks carrying more duties (with no additional comp).

    Advice to Management

    Be more open. Stop making advancement a zero sum exercise.
