      Disapproves of CEO

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

      Pros

      Great benefits Quality people Excellent training programs They have an Employee Assistance Program (which is amazing in my opinion) Decent work culture

      Cons

      There is not much opportunity for movement or additional experiences. The job is EXCEPTIONALLY micromanaged (down to the minute). They are flexible, but you must go through hoops to get there. If you are looking for a job with creativity, you won't find it here. This company will recognize your good work, then say "okay, now do more" - this may not jive with everyone.

        I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Great team. Lots of opportunity to grow within the company and they are really focused on your personal and professional growth. Great place to start your career in science/business/sales

        Cons

        Huge company with lots of communication issues. Inside sales is the bottom of the food chain and your sales will often get taken by more senior reps and technical specialists without communicating back to you. Difficult to actually see the point or value of the team other than to acquire young talent.

        Advice to Management

        More clear communication and path to goals.
