I have been working at Life Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Dynamic environment, cutting-edge technologies, strong teams, and clarity of vision help make Life Technologies a great place to develop a career. Life Technologies is doing some very exiting things with cloud computing, application delivery, bioinformatics, and big-data analysis.

Cons

Fast paced environment, this is not the place to work for people who like to keep a static routine or are unwilling to learn new technologies and modern processes.

Advice to Management

Keep the vision, focus on delivery.

    I worked at Life Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Results driven , fast paced , opportunity to take global roles,

    Cons

    Poor recognition, expected to take no more without any rewards, poor ERP system integration leading to poor information . High pressure environment and you are a looser if you work only 8 hr days even if you accomplish your job.

    Advice to Management

    Need better long term vision . Invest in systems for better information. IT is the worst place to work in this company
