      I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      I've met great colleagues and made a couple of friends

      Cons

      The VP and managers add a hedge to all of the sales reps targets, minimum is usually $20K and over. So the target given to the sales rep is over inflated to protect the management team, which makes sure they get paid out their bonus for year end. I've seen rep's finish at 98% to plan, had the hedge not been added on, they would have hit plan. The company simply wants to save money by under paying their hard working sales...

      Advice to Management

      Treat people with decency, don't take all the credit, accomplishments are made as a team effort.... Unfortunately the head to the region thinks he's the reason for good performance..... Give raises, Don't be shy to pay, if you did maybe you would have less turn over

      I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Paycheque comes in every two weeks which is nice. Work life balance is okay but management is leaning towards more micro-management (aka the only positive aspect is being removed).

      Cons

      Awful pay. Bonuses are so low they are not worth the effort (example-customer surveys are weighted and gamed against the benefit of the worker so that any negative survey is weighted heavily enough to erase all the positive reviews and eliminate your bonus). They brought in some idiotic Thermo points system that you can overpay for merchandise rather than paying cash. Very corporate and very very management heavy....

      Advice to Management

      Stop being greedy. Fairly pay the staff that are on the ground in front of the customers. Offer stock options to staff. Stop gaming the bonuses and reward system negatively against the worker (19 good surveys and 1 bad survey will equal an overall fail and no bonus plus you get a talk from your big brain manager).

      Pros

      If i could give them 0 stars i would

      Cons

      Unrealistic goals, huge potential for long term injury, co workers constantly trying to sabotage and blame each other when a mistake happens. Very toxic management team who are barely trained to do their own jobs.

      Advice to Management

      Do a more thorough background check to ensure employees have not had team work issues at other companies, it compromises the work environment and the products manufactured
