Disappointing - the most qualified candidates are typically not promoted.

Pros

There are opportunities for working 1/2 day Fridays and for telecommuting, depending on what department you're in and what kind of manager you have. Good salaries, benefits, etc.

Cons

Work/life balance is a joke, jobs are often eliminated or "restructured" based on management's whim and their like/dislike for certain individuals. The most qualified candidates are typically not promoted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop micro-managing every little thing. Most of the mid-level employees can do their own jobs and yours (and better than you can) without someone looking over their shoulders 24/7.

    Pros

    Department was a close knit group and management was very knowledgeable and fair. Fully matching 401K and decent company funded retirement plan.

    Cons

    Decision to close research site in Wilmington. Hard to get promoted in scientific ladder. Asked to do more with less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember you need scientists to discover new compounds and to make sure they are safe. Don't close any mores sites in the US.
