I worked at Life Technologies as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

You easily learn your job.
You make some great friends.
4/10 hour shifts = large weekend.
A lot of Overtime opportunities.
Close-knit group.

Cons

In manufacturing, you didn't advance.
Large turnover.
They only keep those that kissed butt - not necessarily those that worked the best.
You're stuck with the same people for 10 hours.
On your feet for 10+ hours.

Advice to Management

Actually get to know your workers and observe who really does work hard and REWARD them.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, the management is responsive and helpful!
    They are focused on safety and employee efficiency, Kaizen and safety initiatives are excellent.

    Cons

    Manufacturing shifts were 5am to 33pm and 3pm to 130am. Sundays thru Wednesday or Wednesday thru Saturday.
    Worked with plenty of very hazardous materials and it's tiring standing and moving for most of the shift.
