I have been working at Life Technologies full-time (More than a year)

Pros

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

Cons

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

Advice to Management

Train your managers in leadership, management, team building

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Life Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic, always changing, opportunities for lateral moves are encouraged, smart people, opportunities to travel to different locations and relocate, culturally diverse.

    Cons

    Too many acquisitions, integration headaches, Oracle shop, benefits have been steadily cut over the years. If one is not in CBD or at Ion one would be pretty much worthless.

    Advice to Management

    Try taking some lessons in empathy and please don't imagine that you can b.s as much as you do. Scientists aren't that stupid.
