      Pros

      Lucky to have a good team. Flexible working hours. Line managers are very understanding.

      Cons

      Upper management often don't care about the bottom line. Unrealistic time lines are promised although from the beginning it is clear they are not achievable.

      Pros

      Good bonus from covid and pandemic response payments.

      Cons

      Poor management in Australia Middle managers are placed in positions without competitive employment processes and are not qualified for their roles. No promotions based on merit. Employees are continuously expected to work beyond the scope of their roles.

      Thermo Fisher (Australia) - an uninspiring and chaotic company to work for

      Jan 26, 2022 - Sales

      Pros

      Large company/large range of products to sell Some good co-workers - who actually understand how to serve a customer

      Cons

      Out dated systems and processes Lots of inexperienced staff - hired on price not experience - ineffectual co-workers at every level - you have to do your own job and the work of others. Below-market salaries and limited career progression HR department seems to be totally uninterested in removing ineffectually performing co-workers - lack of accountability at multiple levels. Significant customer issues at multiple levels within the company (customer care, warehousing, product management, senior management, manufacturing) In summary, a long term underinvestment in experienced people and functional systems has led to the absolute shemozzle of a company in Australia - it has clearly lost its way - a chaotic work environment from front to back.
