        Company has switched product direction so many times over the last decade, it fails to meet today's needs.

            Great pay and bonus plan, excellent benefits and flexible management. Solid advancement opportunities, and recognition for success.

            Cons

            Sometimes long hours are necessary, and the products are by nature very complex. Understanding the material requires significant personal investment, only by using them will you gain insight into the issues seen. Customers can get very pushy, due to the critical role the product play.

                      Do you experience that how long the hiring process would take at Thermo Fisher? I got my second interview with hiring manager at the beginning of November but I haven’t heard nothing from them. When I’ve emailed them to check in they just said that the process would be slow, no time frame. I would be able to get an offer soon from other company but work as contractor. Should I wait for Thermo Fisher?

                      Booz Allen Hamilton Recently applied and I've been referred for an interview! Any tips on interviewing with Booz Allen? And if I am being asked to complete clearance and background upfront, is this a good indicator for being hired?

                      Alex L.

                      Applied for a job a few weeks back, got a call from HR yesterday morning about an interview next week. She mentioned she'd shoot me an email with all the interview details, but so far, my inbox is empty. Assuming I'll hear from her early next week, is it normal for them to expect me to show up for an in-person interview on short notice, like couple days?
