    I have been working at Life Technologies as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice environment, nice people, good training systems (at least awareness to arrange different trainings to suit employees' / sometimes company's needs) , flexible time...In all, a place worth staying for one who's willing to follow the suit

    Cons

    Team-work spirit is not very high (at least in my team, everyone's good at just doing their part of job). Cross-department cooperation is not very effective due to poor communications. Manager's skills are yet to be developed. Salary is so-so, on par in the industry to say the best.

    Advice to Management

    Think about how to really motivate employees as some tremendous talents are buried in daily routines.
