    Pros

    Structure, support, great products. Excellent reputation among customers.

    Cons

    Pharma industry has changed a lot and unfortunately all pharmaceutical companies are victims. Like other companies, corporate meetings are a dog and pony show. Nobody can really speak their minds or give their 100% honest opinions.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest

    Pros

    Smaller pharmaceutical company with opprotunity for growth within.

    Cons

    I've had 3 different managers in 2 years due to multiple realignments. We have many recent changes in upper management and executives trending towards big pharma with many ex Pfizer and Amgen people.

    Advice to Management

    My experience with management has been overall positive. Managers have very hands off and allow for autonomy.
