    I worked at ApotheCom full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really smart, fun people. Good collaboration across the offices. Senior management listens and responds to problems. Strong scientific and digital groups and they are all in-house which is unique.

    Cons

    Office in SF is small but growing. Location in the city is really easy to get to on public transportation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow and diversify the business so you can absorb drug failures that always happen.
