Great company, not all teams worth the hassel

Senior FA (Former Employee)
Carlsbad, CA (US)

I worked at Life Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

Pros- great company, product, longevity
- majority of folks very knowladgable

Cons- i would NEVER work with some of the finance folks again (bad team players, opportunistic, no understanding of personal life)

Advice to Senior ManagementBe actionable about your annual employee survery results and take guidence from it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
