I have been working at PerkinElmer full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The starting salaries are OK but cost of living adjustments are minimal. Everyone starts with 3 weeks vacation.

Cons

They have very little regard for experience or expertise, especially in the Life Science & Technologies division. Under the direction of Kevin Hrusovsky, they are closing entire sites and getting rid of years of experience around profitable product lines.

Advice to Management

Show some respect for the accomplishments of your employees- not everything is easy as you think it is. Discarding the expertise makes it so much harder for those that remain to do a good job.
