      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time for more 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.

      Disapproves of CEO

      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).

      I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time for more than 20 years

      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
