Large company with the usual pros and cons

European Applications Specialist (Current Employee)
Cambridge, East of England, England

I have been working at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time for more than 5 years

ProsBig company, generally secure in this climate, for the most part I work with a fantastic group of people!!

ConsRed tape, overstretched in places, managment often seems to take the 50,000ft view - forgetting those people at the "coal face".

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend some time with the sales team - talk, and listen to their views.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
