Pros

Well, we have one of the better benefit and pension packages still around, and it seems to be well funded. It is also not uncommon for people to work here 20-30 years.

Cons

They have this amusing habit of repeating history. I've seen it happen several times in my dozen or so years with the company.

Advice to Management

Quit going in circles.

    Pros

    Focus on the bottom line, take swift action to course-correct financially.

    Cons

    Unforgivable long-term tolerance of mediocrity, insane bureaucracy, and legendary hypocrisy.

    Advice to Management

    A total transformation is required. Have the courage to become nimble. Get R&D out of the dark ages. Think and act like a biotech if you can pull it off.

    Pros

    Good benefits, if you aren't contracted.

    Cons

    - Contract-to-hire never pans out and you do the same, if not, more work than actual employees.
    - Layoffs are way too frequent

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like humans, we are not as disposable as you treat us.
