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

Pros

Strong leadership from Finance, HR and IT organizations. They will recognize talent and encourage professional development. Lots of opportunities to move around to different divisions, departments, and geographies. Fair compensation but good benefits.

Cons

More opportunities to move sideways than up the ladder. Very political organization at the corporate headquarters. Leadership team forces geographic moves on employees due to hiring needs at the large number of isolated office locations (think holding company). Very active in the strategy department, meaning risk of site divestiture or consolidation.

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

    Pros

    Great work/life balance of course this would mainly depend on your manager and position. Some are more flexible than others. Was given my redundancy with sufficient notice to find other opportunities, for this I am thankful.

    Cons

    Very top heavy organization with a lot of bureaucracy. Some higher up people are just plain rude, unprofessional, and in a certain respect hostile this does not foster a team environment...in some instances the more crass one can be the higher up you'll go.

    I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Big company with resources. Has a number of different divisions.

    Cons

    You are a number. This is not a company that rewards top performers. It is more about the redistribution of wealth. All employees are expendable. Company is doing well because they pay people less for their position and slowly reduce the amount of benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees...especially the ones that perform. Listen to their ideas. It is one thing to talk about core values and another to actually live them.
