A very decent workplace

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Nice place to work. A bit of a distance from DC. Relaxed workplace. Everyone knew their role. Management was not overbearing. Coworkers in other departments cold be cold. Two head scratchers--nonworking soda machine never removed and two refrigerators always full.

Easy work

Good working environment. Leadership can be lacking but overall not bad. Pay can be definitely be better especially when they stress the importance of what you do

Don't know what they're doing

People are mostly pretty good, benefits are alright, management is terrible and don't have any communication with the team. After covid revenue ended they let go a bunch of people and now are trying to say not enough work is getting done so work more. They also don't ever listen to what you have to say.

Great company

The field sales roles have great benefits and an inclusive team environment, with a flexible schedule. There is lots of cross-divisional collaboration. Be sure to pay attention to KPIs.

Great work culture and excellent benefits package. There are a lot of opportunities for advancement here as well as education and growth. Consistent schedule and management is amazing.

Don't trust management

I came into the job with a hard working mindset. Management complained about not being able to find the right candidates, saying they are too lazy. Within a month I was asked to take on lead responsibilities; they would notify the team of my role and would have to work a different shift to accommodate. When I asked about compensation for the additional responsibilities, management rolled there eyes and said I would not be compensate until I finished all the training (about 1-2 years). Even if I did take on the added responsibility and went through the training I would still have to compete for the raise within my department. So while management still get there raises I would have to be willing to screw over my team if I wanted an addition $.50. Which is already a ridiculous pay raise for the current economy that we are in.

Becoming more toxic by the week, poor management and upward mobility,

Toxic workplace due to layoffs, poor management. It’s all about the stakeholders, management doesn’t want to listen to the operators and tend to hire people for supervisor positions outside of the company. They say that the company fairly treats all employees but there are favorites in every department.


Incentives for different shifts


Took away paid lunches, pinching pennies due to not enough work

Place is a dump

Place sucks and everyone is rude place is dirty and upper management don't care about anything but numbers. They work you to death then give you run around if you need a day off




No breaks

High turnover rate

I would not recommend working here long term. They have a high turnover rate. Benefits are not the best. Good matching 401K. This job pays the bills.

Only good if you have a good manager

For two years I was very happy at Thermo Fisher. Then the manager I was working under left, and the company spent the next year tearing down everything he had built before dissolving his team and sending our jobs to people in Europe. The manager who replaced him at the time had no idea what our work was, how we did it, how we stayed in touch with our sister teams, or what tools we used. Your mileage will vary. Upper management is highly corporate and has no idea whats going on in any given area. Top down directives that make no sense and disrupt work are common. The best workers stay for a few years and then leave for greener pastures. Pay is average, benefits below average.


Good people, interesting work, highly flexible work hours if you have a good manager


Weak benefits, no employee loyalty, bad management

Awesome place

Challenges for people who would like to do things differently and be innovative. But overall it is a great place to work and grow your career. Nice place for people who can focus and deliver

Great people. Need vision for future

Great place to work with the people. Good training offered. Need vision and direction with support from management to get work completed. Resource issues always popping up.

Okay for a corporate Project Manager job

I liked the general work culture at Thermo Fisher and they encourage training, although there's not a lot of time in your day to do so. My immediate department was understaffed so it was surprising to get laid off. Management is not plugged into reality and there are cliques of certain preferred people who are not very good at their jobs. You must create your own work boundaries and schedule.


Pay is good


You could work 24/7 and not get it all done they are severely understaffed

Great company depending on your team

I think Thermo Fisher is a great company to work for. However your team can really determine your experience (good or bad). I feel its hard to get promoted there but overall its not awful.

leadership is inconsistent and often making poor decisions. The work wasn't hard, the traveling 5k miles a month was. It wasn't always like that, till management decided to rush the process and put quantity over quality.

Bad management

Great workers being laid off because of poor management decisions. Only the buddies of the supervisors have their job saved.. terrible work culture unless your buddies with the boss!!
