left traumatized...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsI worked with some fantastic colleagues here and the science is cutting edge. the compensation package was very attractive.

ConsThere was absolutely no work-life balance, employees had no voice and middle management is poor to say the least. I got the impression managers relied on HR to do their jobs for them...which was to manage.The HR Director was downright rude and may be in the wrong area as human compassion is something she is totally lacking.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement could use soft skills training i.e. effective communication, conflict resolution, and morale/ leadership development.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
