I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (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 has very few pros. The company's culture has changed so much over the past years that it is unrecognizable. It does have very dedicated workers who are trying their best in a corporate culture gone awry.

    Cons

    Thermo has changed over the years into a culture that eliminates individual contributions and encourages the corporate lockstep mentality. Every employee is looking over their shoulder, fearing reprisals. Don't let Human Resources fool you, they are not there to protect the employees, but rather to protect the company only. They will stretch the truth to the point it is unrecognizable, and put profit over everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize your employees are more valuable than your technology. Drop the idea of the 4 I's until you can follow them as well.
