A sad, mediocre place

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementA 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
