    Pros

    Fair compensation, benefits and rewards for performance. Good opportunities for advancement. Flexible work hours. Strong clinical focus with patient best interest the focus.

    Cons

    Demanding work schedule. Heavy on administrative workload. Approvals are required for nearly everything as the company is very paranoid about all compliance guidelines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the administrative workload for all employees. Return to your roots and focus on the development of therapies that cure disabling diseases.
