    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Big on ethics, communications, professionalism. Large company can bring the economies of scale to bear on medical insurerers. They are large enough to have found out long ago that there must be established company policies. Too many companies just float by many issues taking them as they come up and hoping they only come up rarely. Not a good way to run a company.

    Cons

    A little too "professional". Very "tight" environment. No one seems to have a sense of humor! Leo may be Thermo's pick for CEO, but it should've stayed in the hands of an original USCS (US Counseling) senior manager. What? They weren't qualified or have the right credentials? Come on!!

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up! Make it more enjoyable to come to work. Tell employees what possibilities they have to work up the line and what they need to do and accomplish (and time-wise too) to be promoted and move up.

    Pros

    Career stepping stone. Or, an ideal place if you want a stagnant job that has leaves zero accountability for failure or success, and makes absolutely no sense to normal, intelligent people.

    Cons

    Most managers are significantly underqualified and lack proper business acumen and experience to perform their roles as managers in the department they manage. This is the number reason why the company experiences low "talent alligience scores". Managers are also allowed too much control in their level of decision making, with no balance of power to allow the employee to succeed, grow, get a raise or move up. (And if you manage to get an annual raise, it will be a mere 1-3% of the pay modifier the factory designates.) They don't tell you this during the interview process.

    Managers get bonuses based on how much of their annual budget and pay modifiers (raises) they are able to retain. This makes their devisive, agenda-driven behavior even worse. The abuse of power and lack of proper leadership throughout the whole company makes it an impossible place to succeed. I was once told by an ex-manager that during one of their manager meetings, doing 10% more with 10% less each and every year was expected, and that fear and greed are the desired means of driving employees to fulfill their goals. How can you operate like that?

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to concentrate on hiring managers who have experience in their relative field, and who possess business skills, not laboratory skills, or have worked their way up from a customer service representative. They should also retire themselves, because they are way overpaid for their level of experience in relation their role, and that's what get the whole crazy train going in the first place.
