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

    Pros

    The cafeteria, gym, and the building. The benefits are nice too.

    Cons

    Take every vision that you may have about a healthy workplace. Got it? Whatever you envisioned, Thermo Fisher is the opposite. In short, you are merely a name and job title: You are not an actually person with human needs.

    Advice to Management

    I would start with a Google search, "how to be an effective manager." That's about all I can expect with the quality of management that I have come across my two years at the company.

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

    Pros

    Its a very large and diverse company. They do business all over the world and operate in many different scientific areas. The work can be very rewarding.

    Cons

    Constant turnover in upper management. Each division functions basically as its own entity. Often poor cooperation between divisions and functional groups. The company has been making frequent large acquisitions for several years but hasn't done a wonderful job of integrating those companies. Things often seem disjointed. There's little opportunity for advancement outside of the largest sites.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on consolidating resources and more on assembling and managing effective projects/groups. Stop rewarding incompetence.
