I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time

Pros

The technology is fun and interesting to work on, and generally, the engineers and scientists are a good group of people to work with.

Cons

Layers of inept management combined with lots of pointless meetings, endless reviews of project plans, turf battles, and lots of empty corporate slogans.

Advice to Management

Reward risk-taking.

    I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Big company, good experience for your resume. Thermo makes some great products. The manufacturing side may be different. My experience was with Fisher.

    Cons

    Fisher: Two year turnover rate. New hires are thrown under the bus so more seasoned, connected managers can move up. Insufficient training in all positions. Be prepared to lose your job to make the company's bottom line look good to the stockholders in slow years.

    Advice to Management

    None.
