    *Chance to learn and study
    *Great people to work with
    *Travel
    *Flexible time options
    *Ok benefits
    *Exposure to many scientific disciplines

    Cons

    PerkinElmer quarterly lays off a good portion of work force. Company morale is desperately low. There is no set direction from leadership. The only plan is the 3 month plan. Short term monetary gains are encouraged at the expense of long term. Senior management has no idea about the product offerings of the company. Executive yell to mask ignorance. Company is over extended. Does not have expertise or manpower to cover what it says it does. Too many bean counters. No structure to financially compensate career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the little things. Pay your workforce. Do something, anything well. Follow through with plans. Take a hard look at who is leading and what they bring to the table. Remove the tired faces and ideas.

    I should have insisted on seeing a job description before accepting a position with this company

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, telecommuting opportunites, very astute and intelligent workforce

    Cons

    Lack of diversity, lack of training, never saw job description

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should manage their team instead of primarily functioning as team members. Spend time developing processing which then are used to develop employees
