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

    Pros

    Able to contribute to cutting edge science that benefits all mankind.

    Cons

    Local caste system fostered rather than discouraged.

    Advice to Management

    You can't fake genuineness. Corporate doesn't seem to care about employee satisfaction. Annual surveys point to same problems year over year without change. Employee development and training has become non-existent. This is problematic for a cutting edge biotech company. Corporate initiatives too often, and not sustained. Real change can't be effected because entrenched people wait it out. History has shown that it will soon change to some new thing.

    Pros

    World beating biotech. Really great products you can believe in. Workforce of amazingly talented and wonderful people.

    Cons

    Upper management gives a clear message that employees are not valued vs shareholder value. Uses "Harvard Business Review Method of the Week". Shifting priorities and abandoned initiatives litter the landscape with no explanation. Whittling away employee benefits. Worst health plan ever made.

    Advice to Management

    Work a bit to develop a culture where employees are valued and rewarded. Instead they are shown they are a drain on the company and you would rather hire out then develop internal talent. FIX THE HEALTH PLAN, don't just market crap to employees and expect them to believe it.
