Thermo Fisher as an Employer
I worked for Thermo for many years. During the early years, Thermo was a great place to work. They encouraged and entrepreneurial spirit and rewarded employees who had great ideas. Today the company operates with every company in lockstep. A few years ago we were told to take a week off, without pay, even though we were behind in our production schedule. When I asked why I was told, "We know this won't save any money, but we have to tell our stock holders we are doing something." Thermo is not a very nice place to work and I'm glad I left, as I have heard things have only gotten worse.
