    Pros

    Nice, cutting-edge employer who cares about employees and strong focus on scientific collaborations. Short distances, low hierarchical levels, and truly open communication on all levels.

    Cons

    After fast and solid growth, next phase is surviving until the next drug is on the market. Currently uncertain future.

    Advice to Management

    Keep reigning with the scientist part in your heart as you always did.

    Pros

    Extraordinary buildings in Switzerland, great food and coffee, good performance-based bonuses. Flexitime system (badging). Young and therefore flexible company. Rather good working atmosphere. Company has a daycare, offers language courses, lots of training options, many sport centers in the neighborhood including an open air swimming pool.

    Cons

    Accessibilité par les transports en commun n'est pas optimale. Licenciements de masse en 2012. Les salaires sont soit-disant plus bas que dans une grande compagnie pharmaceutique. Quelques tensions entre les différents départements, comme dans toutes les entreprises. Une petite entreprise, avec des risque inhérents de rachat.

    Accessibility is not optimal by public transports. Mass dismissals in 2012. Salaries are said to be lower than in large pharma companies. Some tensions between ome departments like in all companies. Small company with inherent risk of a buyout.

    Advice to Management

    Accroître le portfolio et continuer avec des risques calculés !

    Expand portfolio and continue with calculated risks!
