    Highly collaborative environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMotivated workforce, sensible upper management, interested in good science, highly collaborative

    ConsBIG company, lots of department, can be intimidating at start. Too many projects that' can be overwhelming, lots of meetings.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of waiting for employee to say 'No' to a project due to insufficient bandwidth, evaluate before handing down a non-essential task if the employee is spread-out too thin. Help employee prioritize essential tasks.

    Fantastic and getting better

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLeadership is dedicated to making this a world-class bio-pharmaceutical company (the best of bio-tech and pharma) - Big, but seeking to be agile. Also we are committed to targeting some of the most debilitating diseases with high unmet need - quite a task and more exciting than working for a company that's making the next "me too" drug.

    ConsLocation - North Chicago is NOT Chicago... it's basically Wisconsin.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAddress hierarchy as a cultural issue

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
