Pros

My boss was very supportive and gave me freedom to get my work done.

Cons

Internal computer support was always a challenge and needed to streamline how employees got assistance with getting computer basics set up as new employee. It took over 2 weeks to get access to my email and other necessary applications.

    Pros

    Compensation and Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Worklife balance does not exist in all areas.
    Efforts are not always valued. Very little attention to celebrating successes as attention tends to on what is not getting done and what need completed next.
    Accolades tend to come accross ingenuine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a culteral survey and get anonymous results categorized department. Granularity may help address some of the cultural issues. The enviornment in some areas may be good....but not everywhere.

    Former Employee - Senior Group Leader in Abbott Park, IL

    Pros

    Great area to raise a family. I've recruited great scientists. Comfortable pace due to the slow bureaucratic culture

    Cons

    Incompetent management. Very jealous talents. Care too much about keeping position rather than great science and research.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even if you only care about your own promotion, power and politics, use the talents and not destroy them. In long run, u will gain cuz of it. Those who remained there did not deserve to be there.

    Doesn't Recommend
