    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work variety, friendly production staff

    Cons

    Management need to work big time on keeping employees who are great & committed to the company. Invest time in proper training. High staff turn over Unrealistic expectations Felt as though there are set rules for particular sections compared to others. Investigate issues properly with evidence instead of here-say. When employees approach management they push blame on others Management only held people accountable when it suited them Clique mentality, if you didn't fit in you weren't thought of. No career development HR are very unprofessional, Turning a blind eye if it meant more work for them. Updating policies after serious incidents happening to cover themselves Sacking people is their forte! 8 people in a month! Many being fabulous workers! I absolutely loved my job, I put in so much hard work & suggestions for money saving and production process. but it has completely gone down hill since management ejected 2 employees at once who kept the whole place in line. Now it's being run into the ground.
