    I have been working at Life Technologies as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people here are the best part of the job. They're friendly, helpful and overall just a great group of coworkers to have.

    Cons

    Big corporate culture, upper management is an isolated entity, no mutual communications or understanding. Job security is nonexistent.

    Advice to Management

    Open your doors to people, attempt to get to know the people who perform the handy jobs and their concerns.
