    A good company

    Clinical Research (Current Employee)

    ProsExtraordinary 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.

    ConsAccessibility 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 Senior ManagementExpand portfolio and continue with calculated risks!

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

    Nice, cutting-edge employer with focus on people and science

    Postdoctoral (Current Employee)
    Allschwil (Switzerland)

    ProsNice, 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep reigning with the scientist part in your heart as you always did.
