"Unfortunate."

Former Employee - Kept Changing, Typical in Shelton, CT

I worked at PerkinElmer full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I did have some good supervisors, but they are all gone now.

Cons

Layoffs every quarter (I assume to stay below the radar). Everyone is running scared. No teamwork. Can't blame them.

However, it does leave a company full of :"yes" men. Poor souls, they are all too scared to raise even a slightly different viewpoint.

    I worked at PerkinElmer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Variety of resources. Lots of smart people. Good overall work environment and pleasant group of people.

    Cons

    Company is not innovative. As a large company it is risk-averse and prefers to enter new areas via acquisition of smaller companies instead of growing capacity from within. This makes it a bit boring if you are interested in trying new things.

    Advice to Management

    Organic growth is as important as acquisitional growth.


  2. "good company"
