Pros

Summer internship was an excellent opportunity to explore the pharmaceutical industry. We were each assigned summer projects which we presented upon the end of our 3 months. This paid internship also includes summer housing, car rental, gym membership, and fun extracurricular events (surfing, baseball games, kayaking, etc.). Many opportunities to network with executive level employees . Excellent Executive (C-Level) Speaker Series.

Cons

None. After completing the summer internship program, many interns were presented with full-time offers.

Advice to Management

    Pros

    Company's mission to support those grievously ill is important ... the products really help patients.

    Cons

    People insensitivity - little to no investment in human capital of any substance. very hierarchical

    Advice to Management

    Announce staff reductions - do it and get it over with. The anxiety is tough on everyone
