    Good collaboration atmosphere, good inter-team respect, new, clean building, cafeteria is amazing, yearly bonus, friendly people

    Managers have a good-old-boy thing going on, pay for my position is below industry standard, annual reviews are a joke - worked my tail off this past year with no raise, little bonus, healthcare is not so good

    I worked at Life Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Occasionally come up with great ideas, but they change direction and do the exact opposite of what the idea they came up with in the first place.

    Cons

    Same as above in Pros, but when they change direction/procedures they dont communicate to employees and have nerve to lecture/reprimand you for something they failed to tell you. Also very little compassion or concern for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to talk to your employees properly, stop treating temp employees like dirt.
