I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Positives include-Competitve pay, good benefits and lots of working capital. In addition, because of the size of the company there is good possibility to move around within the company.

Cons

Upper management is very difficult to "break into" from the lower ranks in the company. While there are examples of promotions to VP, the typical mode is to hire from the outside. There's alot of talk about growing/developing employees, but the reality is not there.

    Pros

    Thermo Fisher Scientific is a great company to work for if you are seeking a job function with a narrow job function. There is plenty of opportunity for high potential employees to hone their business skills and capabilities.

    Cons

    This is not the company to work or if you like to wear a lot of hats. Also, the pyramid can get farily narrow past mid-management positions and it may be difficult to get promoted from within to a higher band position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With size comes the potential to lose perspective of what made the legacy businesses perspective. Keep a focus on the customer and understand what the true core competencies are of the repective businesses and divisions.

    I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The working environment is great. The co-workers and boss are nice and diligent. Always willing to help. The compensation is not bad as well.

    Cons

    Depending on your project length or business opportunities in your field of market, the job may not be very stable. Laid-off is normal when it comes to bad economy conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not too aggressive for the lay off
