    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you want to help fight coronavirus, the Applied Biosystems location of Thermo Fisher is a great place to be. Management is good, coworkers are generally friendly and knowledgeable. Unsure about opportunities for advancement. Hours were very reasonable (rarely required significant overtime, plenty of down time during the day) but of course this will vary from position to position. Do a good job, and you should have great job security at Thermo Fisher. I didn't, so here I am.

    Cons

    Joining as a contractor means no job security and no contact with your former supervisor if you leave. But of course, this is true of all contract work, not just at Thermo Fisher.
