Pros

CEO very adept at building enterprise value- great for stockholders
Good work life balance
Decent salary
Definite focus on patients
Job security

Cons

No career growth potential unless you work in Quality Assurance
Company will always seek to secure skills externally (at great expense) instead of developing internal staff
CEO has track record of building up phama companies just to sell them off
Dysfunctional Board of Directors
Many senior leaders lead by title- weak leadership benchstrength
No vision among senior leaders
Very silo'd functional areas
Decisions are often short sighted- penny-wise and pound-foolish
Definite problem attracting qualified talent- often hiring weak players from larger Biotechs in area
