started laying off poeples recently. After they repalced the previous CEO, the new leadership team started reorganization and as you know, what it means...

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, wonderful people, many scientific resources available to employees, work-life balance is ok bordering on good.

    Cons

    HR department seems to not really connect with the employees. Career development seems to take a back seat and overall communication from upper management was not well thought out/ bordering on poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More open communication with employees, help employees have more ownership of their work and spend more time on career development

    Doesn't Recommend
