Compared to what is out there, this is a good place to work

Scientific Affairs Manager (Current Employee) Deerfield, IL

ProsExcellent benefits (health, dental, life, etc.), company car, strong 401k with additional annual bump
Good Income/bonus, stock option alternative compared to other companies
Good vacation time, half day Fridays, very good work-life balance (depending upon your manager)
Annual year end shutdown between Christmas and New Years

ConsVery, very, very poor management (although some managers are trying to improve and have become much better) Senior Management represents the biggest problem. Many of them are so embarrassing and have no business being employed by the company.
Some managers are very mean
Remember, in this line of work, you don't necessarily work for a company, you work for your manager, if they are bad, you are screwed. However, if they are at least decent, you are in a good to great spot.
Some managers are not very fair in how they share recognition or respect.
Company can be highly political, especially in certain departments
Scientific Affairs is a good place to work, but other departments I would not go near.
Sales force seems to be under a great deal of pressure to deliver.
Some backstabbing, caddy behavior, and inappropriate behavior.

Advice to Senior ManagementClean up the ranks. Get competent people who know how to lead.
There is a lot of things that occur that are highly inappropriate, especially in sales. Most of it has to do with certain managers

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: very good pay, some opportunities for career growth, no lack… Cons: lots of politics at the management level leads to shifting priorities, team goals, and worst of all, very good talent… Advice to Senior Management: need to get together and figure out company goals, then… More
