I worked at Life Technologies full-time

Pros

LT deals in cutting-edge biotech systems, so there's always something new to learn, and opportunities to collaborate with people from all over the world.

Cons

The business is global so it never stops and I would often find myself on conference calls and handling emails outside of anything like business hours. Also, projects supporting stated strategies were not always sufficiently supported for good results.

Advice to Management

Be credible to employees, and follow through on stated strategies.
