    Pros

    Great People. The people are what make this place tick. Your colleagues are excellent for the most part and the benefits are strong.

    Cons

    The culture is one of cut, cut, cut! Company seems to be most interested in minimizing costs, not maximizing profits. Reorganizations are just an everyday occurance leading to a lot of discomfort amongst the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Find a direction, then stick to it for 1 year. That'd be a very nice start.


  2. Thinking the past will save the company if we just worked harder to get back there

    Pros

    This company could service a NCE from discovery through to product launch.

    Cons

    The company can't figure out how to make this integration of all the dept's into "the one company that can service a NCE from discovery through to product launch". Departments are silo's of talent.

    Advice to Management

    Find the leaders in the company who do know how to interprate the drug development life cycle and plan accordingly.
