    I worked at Life Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most people there value your contributions more than the time you spend at the office. The teams are very coordinated and connected; they communicate every step of the way. They trust you to work with high-level staff within a very short period of time. Very interesting and exciting body of knowledge with which to work.

    Cons

    Training was by documentation; the documentation was out of date, which we learned by spending time producing the wrong results.

    Advice to Management

    There's a relevant adage: "Most people don't leave their jobs--they leave their managers." Like in most work environments, some of the managers would benefit (and their teams would benefit) if they took management courses.

    I worked at Life Technologies as a contractor

    Pros

    The quality of the people and products at LT are amazing. It is a good step in the way to a good company such as Illumina.

    Cons

    The company has no loyalty to its employees. When the 4th quarter arrives no job is safe. Therefore, many of the people working are contractors. Contracts are easy to cancel without notice.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate your employees and worry less about the landscaping!
