    Pros

    D'extraordinaires bâtiments en Suisse, la nourriture et le café sont excellents, les primes basées sur la performance sont bonnes. Un système temporel flexible (badge). Une entreprise jeune et donc souple. Une atmosphère de travail plutôt bonne. L'entrepr

    Extraordinary buildings in Switzerland, great food and coffee, good performance-based bonuses. Flexitime system (badging). Young and therefore flexible company. Rather good working atmosphere. Company has a daycare, offers language courses, lots of training options, many sport centers in the neighborhood including an open air swimming pool.

    Cons

    Accessibilité par les transports en commun n'est pas optimale. Licenciements de masse en 2012. Les salaires sont soit-disant plus bas que dans une grande compagnie pharmaceutique. Quelques tensions entre les différents départements, comme dans toutes les entreprises. Une petite entreprise, avec des risque inhérents de rachat.

    Accessibility is not optimal by public transports. Mass dismissals in 2012. Salaries are said to be lower than in large pharma companies. Some tensions between ome departments like in all companies. Small company with inherent risk of a buyout.
