I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (more than 5 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    The people that you work with are in the same boat as you, so it's nice to have someone to gripe with but keep in mind, this is a call center.

    Cons

    Pathetic company luncheons, minimum to no raise, micro managing, company work ethic of "squeezing blood out of a turnip" with the amount of work that you are expected to complete between phone calls for minimal pay, benefits sucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people to keep up with the work load and show some employee appreciation. Don't brag that you as the vice president make way more money than your peon poor workers that you "Don't have to worry about gas prices".

    Pros

    Big company benefits, good reputation. Stayed busy and grew despite the economy.

    Cons

    Terrible HR system, PMD process is a joke. Local management is clueless, they do not respond or give credit for ideas. Corporate touts the PPI process, at CCG it is a total joke! Low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more 360 reviews and then act on them! Don't treat those in the trenches as idiots.
