    I worked at Life Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Lots of really intelligent & talented people to work with, some ability for further education, nice on-site gym

    Cons

    Constant stress will keep you always sick & tired and dreading coming in to work, never enough time in the day or resources to complete required tasks, priorities are constantly changing with no notice, lots of promises made by management with little follow-through, middle management always fighting over/against intitiatives, upper management has no clue what it takes to work on the floor, very little appreciation, bottom line much more important than health and happiness of employees, genuine concerns brought to management/HR ignored, constant restructuring of teams/managers= too many lay-offs of wrong people and promotion of wrong people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to people on the floor, show appreciation, stop restructuring!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to know what's wrong with your company talk to the people at the bottom of the chain. Quit laying off valuable employees in the place of incompetent managers. Try to treat your employees like they mean something instead of constantly berating us. We are not the problem.
