Qualified BPC Technician in Cramlington
Great place to work in general but slow to correct issues
Everyone there is very friendly and great to work with, if you have issues with work like struggling to lift or keep up you can ask to be swapped out without issue. team leaders are fantastic but management are generally out of touch with what actually goes on in the working areas. I was very well looked after until I questioned why my pay rates and holiday rates were different (working via Reed agency) since then the agency ignores me and I am offered no help at all. Although this is mainly an issue regarding the agency, ThermoFisher themselves are extremely slow to adjust pay rates when you get a pay rise and it doesn't get back dated, I have heard from multiple members of staff that they did not receive extra money for almost a year and had to complain numerous times to no avail, which is a shame because in every other area it is a great place to work.
Microbiology Process Operator in East Grinstead, West Sussex
Good environment in terms of facilities to work, 2 x 15 minutes tea breaks and 45 minute lunch, some perks from time to time.Chaotic place to work with chronic staff shortages in the processing/packing department. Some of the managers are snobs, they do not acknowledge people: e. g. with a polite good morning!Age discrimination in terms of professional development is off the scale: e.g. very well qualified workers in the Processing/Manufacture Department with professional experience even in the company, continue to be ignored for technical jobs and are stuck in processing/manufacture, while they take people without any formal life science qualifications to learn technical jobs. It helps if you are good looking and young and do a bit of shoe polishing of the right people!Despite a small facility in terms of numbers of people, there is the ignore-you culture at work. If you lucky you might get a smile or a good morning from some people there including managers! High staff turnover as they prefer young people to do the technical jobs, as soon as they get enough experience they go to work for competitors!

You mean nothing to them

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
