    Pros

    Life Technologies is one of the most innovative companies when it comes to life-science or bio-production products and services.

    Cons

    Life Technologies has come a long way in a short amount of time; their internal processes and management teams are, and will be struggling for some time, to overcome the challenges that are associated with raped growth.

    Advice to Management

    Sales force is too complex, and needs to be scaled down. Fix the systems that are already in place before championing new ones. Scale back on reports required by sales teams – they need to concentrate on selling, not reporting.
