Yue Yin | Manufacturing Engineer, Genetic Sciences, Singapore
Continuous improvement is critical to any company’s success. In our context, it translates to a process of either improving product performance or reducing product costs. Most of the time, it’s both.
My work at Thermo Fisher revolves around the manufacturing of the company’s medical research and diagnostics instruments. It’s one thing to love what you do, and another to be great at it. But being able to directly affect the world with the things you do is the epitome of career satisfaction to me. My colleagues and I rallied together to help with the COVID-19 response during its initial outbreak. We ramped up the production of instruments that were vital to curbing and containing the spread of the virus. Developing solutions, treatments, and vaccines became our daily routine, and it felt surreal to be contributing to a pandemic at an unprecedented scale like this.
Being part of Thermo Fisher is an incredible growth experience, one that is helping me write a new chapter full of possibilities. We create an encouraging and collaborative environment where young engineers feel safe to try things out and learn the ropes without the fear of making mistakes. And because our colleagues aren’t driven by fear, they are empowered to own up to their mistakes and develop solutions to resolve them. An environment like this encourages growth in many ways.
When you’re ready for a career of growth with continual breakthroughs, you’ll discover that at Thermo Fisher Scientific, each one of our extraordinary minds has a unique story to tell. And we all contribute to a singular Mission—to enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.
