    Pros

    Reasonably talented scientists; subsidized lunches

    Cons

    Chances of technical success are low.
    Low compensation structure compared to similar companies.
    Won't give up on Horizant when that product is clearly going nowhere.
    Hiring at the top is a nightmare; they can't hire and keep good leaders, except for Vince Angotti.
    An old boys club.
    One of the key problems is that Ron Barrett is a scientist, not a business-savvy professional. Nice guy, but can't make effective business decisions for the good of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider having Vince Angotti take over as CEO and execute against his vision.
