    Pros

    Great "non-management level employees", worker-bee level employees ... There's a level of comfort in the work environment that allows you to be creative, free and even innovate at times. Some of the most down-to-earth Scientists I've ever had the previlage to work with.

    Cons

    For a BioTech company ... it's not very forward at this stage. Employee turn-overs are super rare, to their detriment as a company. Managements' (very high portion) been there for a very long time tend to be biased against new talent. They are too complacent, instead of teminating an employee whose not performing or "messed" up ... they will just move you to another department instead of dealing with the issues - real issues at hand. Good for some instances but not for majority. Non-management level employees do not have a voice, POLITICS seem to take over when it comes to promotions, etc. When it comes to advancement, performance is not the qualification .... it's popularity.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate your Management Team in all the divisions/groups. After all, they should be able to work cohesively to produce high quality products in the long run, correct? One rule applies, to R&D ... should apply to Manafacturing as well .. don't you think.
