    Cons

    PerkinElmer quarterly lays off a good portion of work force. Company morale is desperately low. There is no set direction from leadership. The only plan is the 3 month plan. Short term monetary gains are encouraged at the expense of long term. Senior management has no idea about the product offerings of the company. Executive yell to mask ignorance. Company is over extended. Does not have expertise or manpower to cover what it says it does. Too many bean counters. No structure to financially compensate career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the little things. Pay your workforce. Do something, anything well. Follow through with plans. Take a hard look at who is leading and what they bring to the table. Remove the tired faces and ideas.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    It truly is a company you can believe in, we have a great purpose and make things better not for just people who can benefit from our products but for the users as well. We do a good job and it shows.

    Cons

    VERY unfair on treatment between co-workers. Uneven pay scale and bonuses among same job titles. The glass ceiling seems so far very low and senior management seems to pacify WAY too much.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and stop biting the hands that are feeding you. Also learn to recognize people a bit more and stop pacifying people and actually listen to them and act.
