I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good benefits and you can find good divisions to work.

Cons

As with most large corporations, there is a lot of political issues to deal with. Advancement is difficult if you don't work hard at it.

Advice to Management

When talent is identified, do your best to retain it or they may walk out the door. Too many excuses for not rewarding employees and no incentive to work hard. Everyone shouldn't receive the same merit increase.

    I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The staff is mostly young and fun people. You can meet a ton of new friends through work. If you're looking to expand your knowledge of the scientific industry, this would be a good fit.

    Cons

    Highly driven on arbitrary metrics and call statistics. Demands for meeting several hours on the phone take away from being able to implement individual sales styles.

    Advice to Management

    Ease off on the metrics and let people manage their territory in their own way (people these days would prefer to work through email or in person, rather than via phone).


  2. "Great Company, lousy location."
