Respects the work/life balance. Does not scale pay competitively.
Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) –  Massachusetts3 June 2019
The company believes in meetings more than carrying out work that needs to be done. They respect the work/life balance most of the time. They do not gives raises competitively. Complete disconnect between the business unit and engineering. They very much strive for profit margins over reliability and quality of product.
Pros
Nice facilities. Cheap lunch.
Cons
Poor Management

Document Flow Specialist (Current Employee) –  Spring House, PA15 May 2019
Since the management change we are expected to do more every day and expected to work OT to get the task done. Some weeks I could not work OT and would get questioned why things weren't done. I feel like more support was needed.

I enjoyed the work I did at Perkin Elmer.

The management system when I was there was in transition and made job security difficult.

Multiple relocations took is toll on me and my family.

Plenty of work to do.
Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Shelton, CT29 March 2019
Employees are hard working, collaborative, and know what needs to be done to get the job done. However upper management has cut staffing to the point that it is difficult to get the jobs done adequately, leaving the lower level managers and employees trying their best to do their jobs.
Pros
Great colleagues
Cons
Upper management continues to cut staffing
