    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at PerkinElmer full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Determined to look good to their customers

    Cons

    They look through everything they do with rose tinted glasses. For perkinelmer, everything they do is the high way. No respect for their employees. Management have no idea what’s going on in their team. There’s no support. All of this contributes to a horrible working life. Also no progression, they do not value your hard work or going above an beyond. Benefits of the job are poor too.

    I worked at PerkinElmer full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A long history of fantastic and innovative products and services to the science and technology markets. Very hardworking, talented and diligent employees (not leaders)

    Cons

    Last 3 years company has deteriorated, having been taken over by Sr leadership whom short sighted strategies employed are for personal share option gain. Operations leadership has been taken over shamelessly by a GE person and pushed down through the organisation a culture of bullying and fear, employing Sr leaders from GE that provide no long term vision or strategy that have destroyed procurement for example and removed talented and knowledgeable personnel who only have the best interests of the company at heart. To any prospective personnel thinking of joining PKI avoid at all costs (especially in corporate procurement)
