    Employees are merely a means to an end here.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Audubon, PA

    ProsGood product line potential. Good looking presence in the market. Decent compensation and benefits.

    ConsLack of accountability at senior levels. Tendency to over promise on what can be delivered. Rather impersonal senior management. No real commitment to employee retention.

    Advice to Senior ManagementView you employees as the individuals they are. Be direct/transparent in critiquing employees. Adopt a culture of retaining and developing employees rather than using them as a means to an end.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Place To work , Low Pay, No Growth oppurtunity

    Clinical Data Reviewer (Current Employee)

    ProsVery Flexible schedule atleast 1 day a week work from home will allow more if needed, Knowledgeable staff co-workers always willing to lend a helping hand. Great Vacation, Everyone is very personable and generally pleasant to work with

    ConsToo much middle management , Say they allow career growth but never happens , dont assume that everyone wants to stay in the same position until they retire., If you want a promotion you have to apply via website unless you are a manager , Director or VP. A little Clicky, Low Pay and Benefits are a bit high . Company used to have quarterly update meetings to keeep staff posted on the profits and whether goals were being met and new buisiness

    Advice to Senior ManagementDont wait until an employee hands in there resignation to inquire 'What can we do to keep you ?". Management and HR should look to promote from within. There should be a clear path for career growth set by management and followed. Being busy shouldn't be an acceptable reason why some great workers are waiting on the bench for you to take notice of their talents

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStill some thoughtful gestures made toward employees, probably started back when the company was small. Good vacation.

    ConsToo much middle management. Becoming way too corporate with all that entails.

    Shiny Ball Syndrome

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Audubon, PA

    ProsMost of the people who work here are good people, they're flexible and easy to work with - there are the occasional 'bad apples' but, unless they're in positions of power/control, you can work around them.
    There is, for the most part, a flexible working attitude - an hour less one day can be made up by doing an extra hour the next day.

    ConsManagement is not really in touch with the workers. They have a tendency to run after the next big shiny ball before they've finished playing with the current one.
    Quick to react negatively to market conditions - lower levels feel the brunt first, upper management get hired shortly after layoffs.
    It is a 'who you know' company rather than a 'what you know' one.
    Low salaries for the industry/experience - many people use it as stepping-stone company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaintain a focus, set clear and precise objectives, listen to your employees a little harder.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    This was a great company to work with initially but as it became larger and more complex, the number of issues increased

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat colleagues. Employees are allowed one day a week to work from home.

    ConsNew hire training is limited at best. You will have to take initiative and ask your co-workers how things should be done. You can't be afraid to ask for help

    Advice to Senior ManagementCome up with a well defined plan to move the company forward. There are too many initiatives with shifting priorities.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Employees, Terrible Leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Audubon, PA

    ProsFlexibility, company events, holiday party, generous PTO

    Consmanagement, small business mind set

    Advice to Senior Managementlisten to your workers if they identify a serious issue with your work process. Pay your employees a competitive salary if you want to keep the talent

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Small, but growing company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Newton, MA

    ProsSmall company - politics not a huge issue. You know you're colleagues. Access to directors and senior management.

    ConsLike with any small company, it grows and slowly begins to sell out trying to gain the big clients etc...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
