    Pros

    As a newbie co-op, this was a great place to learn a wide variety of technical skills in addition to gaining exposure to a healthy small pharma culture. As a small, growing company, the enthusiasm was palpable and was invaluable for me as a developing researcher.

    Cons

    An understandable consequence of starting at the bottom of the food chain was a lack of understanding the development strategies trickling down from the top.

    Advice to Management

    Stay hungry.
