Overall reviews at Thermo Fisher Scientific
Director | Basingstoke | 15 Dec 2020
A company devoid of leadership
Thermofisher is a company to avoid. High staff turnover is driven by low salaries and highly underqualified managers who continually sacrifice the care and well being of their staff for short term targetbattainment.
It is a company to avoid
ConsNot a good place to work
Finance Partner | Dartford | 5 Feb 2018
Company Too Large to Notice Individual input - Frustrating
Unfortunately, this company is so large that they have lost sight of the requirements to run a progressive company - investments are made in people but their hands are tied when it comes to taking things forward.
Concentration to my personal view on wrong elements of the business.
ProsNice Offices & Nice People
ConsView of the business not taken seriously enough

technical support engineer
I would answer email from engineers aroud the globe.I would contact customers about different issues depending where they were because of time zones. I would go to the lab and start the tech support instruments up and take measurments for different projects i might be doing.Attend meetings regarding customer problems with other departments and arrange more meetings if required.Speak to other members of the team to gather information that maybe i was not awere of. I would speak to the shop floor regulary to see if any procedures had changed causing failures in the field.The hardest part of the job was going to customer sites when there were problems with instrumentations and they were not happy with thermofisher.The best part of the job was fixing the problem and the customer patting me on the back with a smile then reporting this back to my manager.
Prostraveling around the world
Conslong hours some days

My time at ThermoFisher was very rewarding, I worked within a busy engineering department with 12 dedicated engineers. The department was due to start some exciting changes in the near future, and it was only that I was moving overseas that I left my position within the company.
