Pros

Great management team, great people,

Cons

politics between department, communication between mid level management from different department needs improvement

Don't just look at the numbers and bars on the presentation slide prepared by a bunch of MBAs, understand the problem from a more techanical perspective is the key to continuous improvement

    Pros

    Stable job and good co-workers

    Cons

    Middle managers do not support their staff. They just take care of themselves. Inner circle gets excellent compensations with stock options and bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of incompetent directors and managers who stifle the company.

    Pros

    You can feel your impact on improving / saving people's lives.
    Vacation, 401k, Pension are all great benefits.
    Works hours that allow work life balance.

    Cons

    Fairly difficult for internal career moves.
    Brand name recognition not as prominent as some other pharmaceutical / health care companies.

    Encouraging internal career moves may increase employee engagement, so that employees are always learning something new and interesting. This may increase employee retention.
