    Don't feel married to the company: If you do a good ethical job, you could be joining the ranks of the unemployed soon.

    I worked at BioMarin Pharmaceutical

    Pros

    Experience. Paying mortgage. Bringing business ideas forward.

    Cons

    "Old boys' club" trumps fair play . Ethical misbehaviors by higher management overlooked. Lack of qualifications evident in senior personnel in some departments. Adverse work environment if you are ethical & fair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solicit feedback from employees who complain about unfair treatment. The truth will empower you to make changes and improve the environment; otherwise history will repeat itself. The annual review is sometimes used as a form of psychological abuse. How do you know how fair or unfair your directors/VPs are?
