      Great Company

      Pros

      Great benefits, work life balance, great people to work with, many opportunities to advance. During 2020, companies had a chance to show their true colors. PerkinElmer proved to me during a challenging time that they are a company I want to be a part of. They take care of their employees and reward their work. Trickle down is a real thing with PE. Highly recommend.

      Cons

      sorry I didn't find them sooner
