Perfect job if you have no other options....
Production Technician (Current Employee), Ottawa, OnAugust 26, 2013
Cons: rewards never given out as promised, removal of most of the incentives to continue working there
Better than being unemployed, but sadly not by much. The pay is horrendous for anyone hourly. The bonuses promised are never received, and there is a great deal of stress put on your shoulders for very little incentives.

Raises were cut in half three years ago claiming it to be the poor economy but the past two years our sales have grown over 200%, – more... the little guys like us see nothing of it. Each annual raise is less than half of what cost of living rises each year.

Promised hours have been cut back from 44 hours weekly to 40, when you get paid little that slight bit extra means the difference between going hungry and paying the electric bill. – less

A really great company
Réception (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONNovember 5, 2012
Pros: opportunity
Cons: one specific employee
This is probably my favorite job. I came in through an employment agency and before I knew it I was asked to take the role of head receptionist (a prestigious job considering the size of this international company). Day to day was more or less the same routine but with the extra time I had I would help different departments. The staff were quite reasonable, – more... well organized, professional, cordial and other positive descriptions. I only have positive things to say about this company. – less

I enjoyed working there, had a great time
Order Fulfillment Planner (Former Employee), Asheville, NCAugust 20, 2014
Pros: thermo was very good about trying to take care of their employees
Cons: in some areas the lack of training
I would have retired from Thermo if there would have not been so many management changes and reduction in workforce.
It was a very fast past work day with never ending changes through out the day, you had to be prepared to take off one hat and put on another to handle the needs of your customers, both internal and external. I learned that everyone is – more... a customer and that you may have to stretch things as thin as possible to get the job done. You may have to stay at work that extra hour to confirm a package is going to make the truck for delivery but in the end it makes you feel great to know your customers needs are going to be met. The hardest part of the job is when you have exhausted every effort possible and you would have to tell a customer there was no possible way their order could not ship early because we had no extra in stock and their unit was not off the production line yet, but that it was moved to the front of the line and would ship the next day. The most enjoyable was to hear the customers voice when you could tell them you had plenty in stock and you would send one out overnight at no charge for early morning delivery so that they could could be back and running the following day. – less

Flexible place to work but bad management

I liked working here for the flexible hours, but management was persistently negative. Coworkers are great and train you well though.

good shift
put away/receiving technician (Former Employee), Nazareth, paAugust 11, 2014
Pros: work hours
Cons: management, no advancement, no raises.
The pay is terrible. Everyone gets paid the same no matter what position you are in. They lie about hiring you through the company. The background checks are more difficult than FBI checks. No raise upon hire. Management is horrible. The training is bad, you have to pretty much learn from other people or on your own. I wouldn't recommend anyone looking – more... for a long term career to apply here. People constantly come and go. A very high turn around rate. The receiving supervisor is a mean old lady who abuses her power. – less

Strong disconnect btw ground level emp and upper mgmt
Senior Chemical Specialist (Former Employee), South San FranciscoAugust 5, 2014
Cons: low pay, disconnect between management, no growth possibility
Unfortunately when ThermoFisher arrived at the site they absorbed too many services and put them under the ULS brand. There was a lot of talk going through the hiring process of cross training within different services but those words were empty statements. The only way to move up within this company would be if any one above would leave and everyone – more... was pretty cemented within their positions. They put a lot of the wrong people into positions that they had no business being in the first place. Program Managers and Department Supervisors were not aware of the low morale going on with the program and their main purpose was to feed the ego of the Director and HR Manager. This contract was way more than ULS could handle but they came in and undercut cost that other companies were paid to do the services at this site. It was all about cost cutting and doing what you can with a bare bones crew regardless of the employees who kept the business running. I would not recommend anyone to work within the ULS brand, you would be better off looking else where. – less

You wouldnt want to work here
Associate Systems Analyst (Current Employee), SwedesboroJuly 25, 2014
Pros: thermo fisher benefits
Cons: poor work environment
While the Parent Company ThermoFisher Scientfic is an Excellent company to work for. The Division known as BSD / PSI Located in Swededboro is absolutely NOT trhe place you want to work. Management is poor. They are more focused on the bottom line that on the people they manage. They lack leadership and communication within departments is poor. The running – more... Joke is everything is "prioriity Secrets" It is very cliquish as many in the compant have been with the company since it was founded. ThermoFisher promotes diversity in the workplace , however PSI is by no means a diverse work environment. The lack of minority employees is almost perverse. Work load is overbearing with individuals being tasked with jobs outside of their description. Compensation is poor yet expectations are high. The mangers just dont care about you. – less

Scientist (Former Employee), San Jose, CAJuly 17, 2014
Pros: great colleagues, a learning place. relax.
Cons: need to improve benefit, need better management
Thermo Fisher Scientific is a decent place to work. I have worked with many PhD level scientists. They are great, best of the best. However, you may work hard but little promotion. The management might not see your contribution.
