    I worked at ALZA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The quality of people that work there is excellent. Everyone is friendly and generally helpful.

    Cons

    Management in general is sub-par, particularly upper management. For the most part, the management is ladder climbers and will do anything to keep their spot or move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start focusing on you direct reports. Many are very good employees, but a lot of them has lost most of their morale.
