    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Average Pay.

    Cons

    Ridiculous hiring process. IT management in Austin was unreliable and not trustworthy. Stories seldom match reality. Poor application of Agile within out division, teams rewarded for deflecting blame instead of taking ownership.

    Advice to Management

    Hire actual managers, with actual management experience. Don't simply promote from within. Be less rigid about requiring people to be in office when the job doesn't involve hands-on work. Be smarter about replacing employees, don't let recruiters contact your staff they are actively replacing.

    I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great products, good mission and good benefits.

    Cons

    Company has grown too big too fast. In the final years it felt like people were just a commodity. Turnover of VP/GM's is alarming and the Global HR community has experienced massive turnover since the appointment of the current CHRO. Sad to see so many good leaders exit in the past 24 months. The culture has become cold and unforgiving. Personally I find this sad as I was such a cheerleader for the company for many years. But had to leave when I could no longer "sell it" to perspective employees.

    Advice to Management

    Remember it is the employees that made you successful. Need at least one member of the CLT to be balanced and comfortable with people and more importantly knows how to inspire. The tough approach of always finding fault even when the business is doing well is no longer working. Leaders are tired and burned out. Try a little praise and being visible - it goes along way.
