What do you like about working at Thermo Fisher Scientific?

"It's stable. You have a job for as long as you want it. They have too much bureaucracy to be able fire anyone. That's mostly a bad thing, really. Wait, I was supposed to say what I like... hrm. Well, we do make instruments which are used to make the world cleaner and safer. That does make you feel good."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"It's a decent enough job. But it's just a job. If you care too much, you're only going to hurt yourself."

What don't you like about working at Thermo Fisher Scientific?

"I spend more time in meetings and dealing with red tape than actually producing anything. There is no actual direction to the products we make. The development teams just build what they think needs to be built and the sales team tries to sell it and the executives try to either take credit or pass the buck depending on how successful we are. There is no overarching vision or strategy."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"The CEO runs the executives in such a way that everyone is more concerned with plausible deniability, passing the buck, and generally avoiding taking responsibility then they are with making the tough choices and taking chances so the company can really succeed. I would do the opposite of what he's doing."
