    Pros

    It's a job that pays the bills.

    Cons

    Career opportunity based on 'good ole boy club' not ability or performance

    Advice to Management

    Clear out the old timers and brown nosers clogging the pipeline and get some real leadership who is respected by their peers and gives respect in return. Stop preaching one thing and then doing another. If you want your reps to stay and work hard then pay them!

    Pros

    Still some good people working there, but the original Watson culture has been heavily diluted.

    Cons

    Constant movement on the M&A front creates nothing but job uncertainty for employees. Recent cuts to reimbursement and benefits while executives and board members pocketed millions. Culture is overrun by fear and negativity.

    Advice to Management

    Bring compensation, benefits, and the way employees are treated back to the high above-industry standards they used to be, employees with low morale are going to drive this company into the ground.
