    Pros

    A lot of opportunities to enhance skill sets, great networking opportunities, opportunities for poster sessions and traveling to conferences

    Cons

    With such a big company it is hard to get foot into other departments unless someone gives you a good word, and have to be very careful as a temporary because most times you won't get a permanent position

    Advice to Management

    Please give temporaries a change to excel and thrive in this environment. Please look out more for temporaries because they have the opportunity to do just as well as those who are permanent employees

    Pros

    The company was very entrepreneurial and driven to do well for the end customers/patients. Allowed flexibility and drove for excellence.

    Cons

    Corporate reorganization and closer ties with parent company, Astra Zeneca, took away the smaller company feel and independence that the company had prior to the reorganization.

    Advice to Management

    Involve the company's employees in the operations and activities of the parent company.

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits. Bonuses every year!

    Proper training in research is lacking and accelerated projects make it more stressful. Open concept office space makes it difficult to be focused and get your work done.

    Great work/life balance; too top heavy however.

    Pros

    The IT management is great. A lot of the bosses are either EU based or based in Cambridge. As a result, they have a very good work/life balance. Their philosophy of allowing you to work from home so you can get your house in order and allowing you to work on stuff while in the office lessens the stress and overall allows you to feel like management cares about you.

    Cons

    The management structure is very top-heavy. I report to a lot of different bosses and can rotate between managers very quickly for different projects.

    Advice to Management

    Share your intentions on converting contractors clearly.
