    I worked at Life Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Honest and dedicated teammates who want to do the right things and sincerely try their best

    Cons

    Strategy changes every three months. Constant layoffs. Management based on fear. Expectations unrealistic, constantly changing and ultimately crazy-making. Culture encourages managers who are arrogant and mean-spirited. People not valued, just used. Good people are constantly stressed and afraid. Compensation poor, benefits are a joke and keep diminishing in order to help the bottom line. Very political. Expected to be on 24/7, including vacations and holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Glad I'm out. Won't be back.
