    I worked at OSI Pharmaceuticals


    Greatest chemistry department I worked for. Had great managers who looked out for my success. Promoted multiple times. Benefits top notch. All the access you need to do research. Great young talent. Great after hours with co workers. Best job for a young person.


    The buying of eyetech. Worst deal of the century. It ate up financing and moral. It was the downfall of a great biotech.
