"Having the opportunity to research and study around the world has enabled me to not only meet many people and make connections, but also to learn my strengths and discover where I can make the greatest impact. I have realized that I cannot be an expert in everything, which has taught me to leverage the knowledge of my colleagues in other areas, whose expertise has helped me achieve my goals."

"What I like most about working for PerkinElmer is that people do not come here to play it safe. Instead, people come here to innovate and make an impact with their work. Fellow employees are very smart, and you have the opportunity to learn from them every day."
