I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time

Pros

Very competitive benefit package, driven and fast paced. The company promotes internal job board and seems to promote from within. The products and services Thermo Fisher offers are vast so lots of opportunity to move around internally.

Cons

Because the company is so large it can be unweildly and difficult to understand 'whose on first'. High turnover rate at VP and above level positions. The divisions tend to operate as separate entities so it because difficult to rally behind 'the Company'.

Advice to Management

Expand communication beyond of direct reports to keep intuned to the pluse of the company.

    Management does not engage with the employees this is an 'old boys' network

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect, concentrate on getting work done instead of scheduling 8 hours of useless meetings

    I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time

    Pros

    The people that you work with are in the same boat as you, so it's nice to have someone to gripe with but keep in mind, this is a call center.

    Cons

    Pathetic company luncheons, minimum to no raise, micro managing, company work ethic of "squeezing blood out of a turnip" with the amount of work that you are expected to complete between phone calls for minimal pay, benefits sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to keep up with the work load and show some employee appreciation. Don't brag that you as the vice president make way more money than your peon poor workers that you "Don't have to worry about gas prices".
