    I have been working at PerkinElmer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The rank and file workers are great, I made a lot of friends and connections there. The work is interesting, and I was able to do some fun projects with my peers.

    Cons

    No matter how well you do or potential you show there is no way you will get a decent raise or salary track. If you start off at a lower salary you will remain there. Business decisions are all political or financial. They attempt to standardize all business platforms for the companies they acquire regardless of whether it will work for the particular unit.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they are saying things are going wrong, the people that run the day to day are actually pretty smart and deserve to be heard. Paying below median salaries as a corporate policy does more to alienate workers than increase profits.

    I worked at PerkinElmer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    free gym, covered parking..that's it

    Cons

    if you have not been there for 20+ years, you have no right to an opinion. The management is the ultimate old boys' club, and look out for each other. They don't provide any training but expect a lot out of you. Health insurance cost is ridiculous
