Nice company to work for
Finance Assistance (Former Employee), Paisley, ScotlandAugust 14, 2012
Pros: very good benefits
Cons: lost interest in employees as human beings
* Calling customer for unpaid invoices and allocating received payments.
* This was my first job in the UK and for me it was a big challenge to succeed in my role as it was in a foreign language. I learned that if you have confidence in yourself you can achieve whatever you want to no matter how difficult it may be.
* Management was great until there – more... was a change after the merge with another company. After this the company was only interested in making money and the interest for employees was gone.
* Working with the team was great, however we didn't not have a lot to do with each other as each of us had their own country to deal with.
* The hardest part of the job was to see everything change and their was no chance for a promotion.
* The most enjoyable part of the job was that there was no interfering from management and I was allowed to do my job the way I wanted to do this. The results were one of the best of the whole team. – less

eSolutions Project Manager (Current Employee), Carlsbad, CAApril 8, 2014
Pros: teamwork
Cons: favoritism
On a day to day basis I support our field sales as the back end support for the East territory. I have to work on my toes to fix problems quickly, which I really enjoy but the remaining parts of the day involve tedious, mundane tasks. I would love to work more directly with customers instead of being glued to my phone/computer staring at excel spreadsheets.

The people that work on Grand Island are genuine and pleasant. Compensation was competitive. Life Tech was recently bought out by Thermo Fisher.

-Life Tech was recently bought out by Thermo Fisher. With this acquisition, there is some job instability.

-The people at Life Tech on Grand Island at very genuine, pleasant and fun to be around. It's like an extended family.

-The hardest part of the job was the uncertainity of the acquisition.

-Upper Level management could be better with broader – more... communication. – less

QC Manufacturing Specialist (Former Employee), Carlsbad, CAJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: diversity
Cons: culture of fear
You can climb all the way up the ladder at Life Tech, and fast but the whole company is built on sand and will wash away with so many other of its ilk.

Get a job that is established on the rock of truth. You might have to swallow your pride and forfiet so much of what you thought was important but it will stand when these paper mache bohemoths tatter – more... and dissolve. – less

Government Relations Assistant (Former Employee), Washington, DCJanuary 23, 2014
I worked here part-time but this was a full-time face paced environment. I enjoyed the staff and the environment and it was a wonderful learning experience. This was the first time that I worked as a PAC administrator and that pretty much was the hardest part of the job, learning the culture of politics as it pertains to gifts and funds being distributed. – more... The most enjoyable part of the job was the same, I learned an entirely different facet of politics than I was previously exposed to and in was very intriguing. I also enjoyed the staff. – less

What a soulless company
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee), Pleasanton, CAJanuary 20, 2014
Pros: nothing good
Cons: everything
This is a soulless company who will use your body then fire you for being unable to work. Bad managers, horrible hours and short breaks. Life tech hires mostly young, untrained contractors to handle dangerous chemicals and work long 12- hour shifts. They work project to project then are laid off. This is not a long term career company.
