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

    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.
