No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The health benefits are wonderful and coworkers are great people, who are very under-appreciated by management.

Cons

You work very hard and are not appreciated by management.
The raises leave very much to be desired - not even enough to come close to match yearly inflation.
Management doesn't communicate or even seem to care about their employees.

Advice to Management

There are very good management courses on-line, please take them.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    *work life balance in some roles
    *One of the best pay for HR folks. HR is the most powerful function in this company. They benchmark their salaries to highest levels of industry.
    *Job stability. If you are not ambitious, you can keep doing the same job for 20 years. They wont fire you.
    * No up or out policy. No forced curve fitting.

    Cons

    *Poor pay for internal promotions and level if you are below director level.
    *Prefers to hire external candidates at higher pay than promote capable internal candidates with similar raises.
    *Very Frugal employer- Corporate office is pathetic; Pittsburgh office is newly built and represents the legacy of Fisher Scientific.
