    Avoid Completely

    Apr 17, 2022 - Business Management in Cincinnati, OH
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    High level of responsibility. Learn a lot about pharmaceutical manufacturing in a short period of time. Thermo Fisher Scientific Corporate is a respectable company.

    Cons

    Cincinnati site is dysfunctional: leadership team does not work cross-functionally. Extremely high turnover rate. Departments are under-staffed and cannot support current business and cannot meet customer timelines. Manufacturing commits to making products that it doesn't have equipment or capacity to manufacture, nor technical knowledge to support. Business processes do not exist, training is informal OJT (ask a neighbor), pharma business is run using Excel spreadsheets.
