I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The pay at ThermoFisher is competitive and overall benefits are okay. The people I do work with are good people and do care about their jobs. Someone is always willing to help you with any questions.

Cons

The new health insurance thru Unity is very bad and for a company this size it should have better health care. Very little emphasis on training, it always comes up in your performance evaluation but your requests to get training are ignored. Current manager is very poor and upper management just seems to let her slide by and ignore her terrible performance.

Advice to Management

A good place to start out and it would depend what group or division you would get a position. The company is a typical big corporation.

    Pros

    Thermo Fisher really encourages managers to develop their employees into larger contributors, leaders, functional experts, etc. If you're committed to the company, but not really sure where the right fit is, you can openly seek a new role elsewhere and your manager will most likely support it.

    Cons

    The downside to the growth is that you will most likely have to relocate. If you're open to it, you can bounce around the world. But unless you're in one of the major footprint areas for the company (Waltham, MA; Pittsburgh, PA; or now Carlsbad, CA (formerly Life Technologies HQ)), then that next opportunity means packing your bags. Some people love it, others feel trapped - you typically commit to a couple years in the new location in return for relo assistance, but then you're likely to be asked to move again, once you're seen as a 'team player.' There can be a fair amount of pressure on relocation.

    Advice to Management

    We paid a lot for Life Technologies. Don't screw it up.

    Keep employees of what direction the company is going try to be more transparent and not hid anything from the employees honest goes a long way.
