Pros

Big company, generally secure in this climate, for the most part I work with a fantastic group of people!!

Cons

Red tape, overstretched in places, managment often seems to take the 50,000ft view - forgetting those people at the "coal face".

Advice to Management

Spend some time with the sales team - talk, and listen to their views.

    Pros

    Very competitive benefit package, driven and fast paced. The company promotes internal job board and seems to promote from within. The products and services Thermo Fisher offers are vast so lots of opportunity to move around internally.

    Cons

    Because the company is so large it can be unweildly and difficult to understand 'whose on first'. High turnover rate at VP and above level positions. The divisions tend to operate as separate entities so it because difficult to rally behind 'the Company'.

    Advice to Management

    Expand communication beyond of direct reports to keep intuned to the pluse of the company.
