Recent Tells/Reviews and Answers on Thermo Fisher Scientific

resume padder at best

about
Worst company to work for. Treatment of employees is ridiculous - expected to work long hours for little praise/rewards. Management is a joke. I stayed a 1 year and got the hell out of there. Tons of re-orgs/layoffs. Not a good company to work for.

appalling company

about
Thermo Fisher are just run for the numbers and short term payback. They treat employees unethically, one day you are great the next history. A culture of bullying comes from the very top and the whole workforce are demotivated. It is always about closures and downsizing and headcount reductions. No real development, packages are awful in the EU, and no understanding of life outside of US - and they wonder why they are doing badly in Europe. If you join them expect a short career! Worst company I have ever had the displeasure of workiing for - and this review is mild!

about
Thermo is the worst place I have ever worked. The employees are treated (and paid) like dirt. Morale is at an all time low. The only people making money, and not being laid off are management. Basically a very bad place to work.

Thermo Fisher as an Employer

about
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.

must be joking

about
worst company I have ever worked for in my past 25 years. Failure is a policy there. Executives get great reviews and bonuses while regular employees get poor reviews (10% by policy get poor review and no increase or bonus) . . . thats right. . . screwing employees is an SOP!!!

layoffs

about
Not surprised about recent layoffs at TMO/AP. Upper management - consisting of laid off Abbott wannabes who live in the sales world of the '80's/'90's - must be paid their bonuses. Employees barely exist in a world of stress and fear. Very sad.

Thermo Fisher - DON"T

about
Thermo Fisher is a horrible employer! Management is a "good old boys network" and so politics are often more important than hard work for getting ahead. The company's management philosophy is "You should be happy to have a job" and it's managed for the Next Quarter instead of managing for a long-term healthy company. If you can find work elsewhere, you will be happier.
