Pros
Cons
  • IT staff level has never been adequate so work life balance is skewed (in 93 reviews)

  • Upper management seems to make decisions that are cost saving initiatives, but they don't seem to take into account the impact on the customer (in 56 reviews)

    I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many ambitious intelligent people on all levels in the company wanting to succeed. Company promotes win-win ideas and continuous improvement. Company is big and strong. There is a huge potential for networking.

    Cons

    Red tape (due to size of the company) and fast aquisitions (diversity of different parts of the company) make process standardisation and positive changes quite challenging to achieve. Long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the path to unite different divisions, departments, people.

    I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good team atmosphere, with permanent and temporary workers all included. Sharing ideas is encouraged. Lots of humour, some really fun personalities. Most vacancies are circulated internally first. Much more focus on solving issues than blaming individuals. A free weekly "happy bus" into Loughborough.

    Cons

    Policy says temps must be let go after ten months. Little long term opportunity for anyone outside the science/ lab background. Archaic systems in places, some of the work is very dull. Some "cubicle mentality". Many employees say "obviously" about twelve times an hour. Until Christmas 2012 everyone has to eat lunch in a tent (canteen space being used for a special project).

    Advice to Management

    Consider whether retaining trained experienced temps for longer is worthwhile. Senior management could be a bit more accessible.
