Worked here as a contract staff. Have to do OT almost everyday. Salary is low compared to other companies in the same industry. Production is always too high.

Productive

I think it was a pretty calm environment when I was not working on projects. However the working hours may be long as you need to stay back to handle some projects after working hours.

Pros

Free food in pantry

Cons

Long hours

Complicated Environment

Complicated environment, from lack of integration and standardization, sometimes can have 'messy' issues. There is alot of politics and you have to know how to navigate through it. Lack of learning culture, local culture very strong, fall in line and do not ever offend people. Lots of silo working and there isnt a cohesive culture or company identity. Some are in retirement mode.

Pros

Pantry with drinks, Quarterly Bonus

Cons

Complicated organizational structure, dirty and small toilets

Very productive workplace

Very nice working environment with nice and friendly colleagues. Everyone is approachable and friendly, all you have to do is to ask politely for help if required, they are willing to assist. Nice pantry area with free drinks, cold and hot beverages.

Friendly colleagues everywhere, fun and enjoyable environment

It was not hard at all to get used to the environment there, all my colleagues were very welcoming, therefore i had no issues befriending them, which made asking them any work related questions very easy. Being in this job made me learn a variety of things and different stations. I had the opportunity to be in charge of a work station, which i am very thankful for the opportunity. overall, i am thankful to have colleagues who are very friendly and easy to approach.

Pros

free snack every week, free lunch every month

Cons

Pay is not satisfying enough

Great Work Culture!

Being in the sales function, I would highly recommend the work ethics of Thermo Fisher. You are rewarded for your work and I have experience little to no encounters with micromanaging from my managers. Not so sure about career advancement yet but it's a great place to work!

Pros

Good package, work culture

Cons

Potential higher management issues
Was this review helpful?

Avoid this place

Terrible place with terrible culture. The management are more like puppets trying to keep their bosses happy. There is minimal employee welfare, and high level of politics and nepotism. You get special treatment if you are the bosses friend. There's no real project management done by project managers, they do admin work.

Pros

Easy job but nothing much aside from that

Cons

Poor career advancement, terrible politics

Normal workplace

Not much challenges. Doing the routine jobscope everyday. Not that exciting of a workplace. Advancement in salary and position takes lots of time. Only good thing is they send for courses only for selected few

Colleagues are nice and fun but boss/working processes needs working on

even though colleagues are nice, after 5 years there is no career progression, feel under appreciated and underpaid. it used to be much better pre-acquisition.

structured well company

As a starting point, it is good to start from a big and well structured company that allows you to learn a lot. It is good to have different branches in the world so that you can have opportunities to work with different people and maybe travel around if you like to travel.

Pros

variety of projects

Cons

long hours
