    Pros

    Great colleagues, good resources, interesting projects. Good mix of biologics and small molecules.

    Cons

    Slow and very cautious to develop drug candidates (i.e., many worthy candidates never progress to clinical trials). Management can be parochial, and seems at times not to understand how to truly nurture a worldwide company.

  2. Interesting work, great people, unstructured program

    Pros

    The work was great; people are really willing to help out and support you. They take really good care of their interns.

    Cons

    Too much networking expected. The internship program is great, but with the split, they don't seem sure on what to do with the full time offers. They also need more consistency across internship experiences in different groups.

    Advice to Management

    Consistent messaging is needed to interns before, during and after the internship.
