    I have been working at PerkinElmer full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Leadership is great and current manager cares about employee's career. Our CEO has made a lot of positive changes for the company.

    Cons

    It's a sloppy process from getting hired, getting on boarded and once you are an employee there is hardly any support during yearly benefits sign up or during the year if you have a problem. Getting answers to anything takes months. This Benefits group is an area that needs a lot of improvement (for US employees).

    I have been working at PerkinElmer full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lot of support from other engineers, and from the support team back at headquarters. Training for the most part is excellent.

    For a core engineer, can go weeks without a work order, which can lead to forgetting what you learned in training.
