    Pros

    Reasonable vacation time; but becareful! Some of the benefits might be taken away after they got you. For example, Friday afternoon time off. They promise people to have Friday afternoon off. But it comes with conditions - put in 40 hours for the week before you can have your Friday afternoon off AND you finished your work. Well, there are so much work and you will NEVER finish your work!

    Cons

    Dishonesty is one of top concerns, at least in certain department. You want to be really really careful if you decided to work there. For example, PSP. Watch out for micromanagment, focus on negatives, dishonesty, and blaming games.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadship needs be honest, respectful, transparent, take ownership (right or wrong), keep integrity, and motivate employees by focusing on positives and strengths rather than negatives and weakness.

    The company is divided in silos that operate in very different modes. Management in each area sets the environment.

    Pros

    Salary, benefits and career opportunities (depending on the area you are). R&D seems to be more dynamic and in a better position now than Commercial. the patent cliff will impact Marketing and Sales at some point. Training opportunities are very good, too.

    Cons

    While you can get training and support, couching is weak as management in some dept. do not care about people development. Some groups get isolated from the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top management should pay more attention on how their middle management is performing. The company has a clear Vision and Mission but the message is not getting through all levels of the organization. It would be interesting to see the results of a real 360 evaluation of Directors and Sr. Directors.
