    Pros

    Work-life balance was the highest priority. Their benefits packages were great. They are very highly respected in the industry and the region.

    Cons

    The workplace was highly political. The company has had ongoing trouble with the FDA for over a decade. They are constantly trying to reorganize in order to address their issues. The management's intelligence and leadership ability is terrible. You will receive recognition for your successes, but that will not be translated into raises or tangible rewards. After your initial offer, do not expect to get many raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit. Your employees need to be paid competitively, or they will go to other companies in the area that do the same type of work and will pay them. You have been trying to fix your FDA issues for decades, and clearly, you do not know how to do it.
