Pros

Products are cool and we are making a difference. Employees are treated well from day 1, with good on boarding process, lots of team building events and regular communication on the status of the business. Managers seem to genuinely are about employees. Continuous improvement culture.

Cons

Company tries hard tone lean, so some employees stretched pretty thin. High growth has put some strain on the systems.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing, but hire more people to reduce workload!

    Pros

    good benefits, some smart and driven employees, some very good managers who legitimately care about their employees

    Cons

    very little work/life balance...you pretty much have to just set your mind that you will not let work take over your life.

    some senior management walk around with their nose held high, as if they were born and walked into a Sr VP position...wrong. Not how it works. You advanced and were allowed to move up the ranks - remember that and allow others to do the same.

    Employees feel disposable....the company has a vision to double workforce and revenue by the end of the decade, but are constantly cutting employees.

    company wants to be one of the worlds most respected companies, but this is merely a talking point...they will never take the actions to get there.

    they want to talk about how they have top talent, but will do nothing to retain it. if you want the top talent, you have to give them an incentive to stick around. they don't understand this very simple concept.

    Advice to Management

    appreciate your employees more

    take the steps to actually become a well-respected company

    don't cut employees when your CEO sits around with his private plane and $40 million paycheck...don't want to hear it.

    Pros

    Benefits package are decent. Pay rate is better than some of the companies out there in the community. Other employees of senior years are great to work with.

    Cons

    How can i put this nicely!...Oh wait this is Thermofisher, there is nothing nice. They will con you, use you, degrade you, humiliate you, pretend they care about you, lie directly to your face, and play the blame game. If you ask a simple question, you get a 20 minute speech that still doesnt answer your question. Common sense and intelligent decisions tend to take a back door to micromanaging and worrying about how many times an employee has to use the bathroom. Morale is poor and management pretends that they care but all they do is passify the employees during high stress situations.

    Advice to Management

    Let go of the tedious details of management that is hurting the morale of the employee. Stop promoting people who are clearly a damaging factor in the morale dept and stop defending the inabilities of the individuals who are ruining the morale. Fairly rate the employee who can offer ideas and accomplish all goals put in front of them. After all, they are your bread and butter!!!!
