Excellent in Theory, Disappointing in Practice.

Pros

Fantastic product concept, good benefits, decent salary. Excellent team of professionals at my level.

Cons

There are wide disparities in management quality, training and experience within departments. Work-life balance is challenging, given management's expectation of unlimited availability regardless of whether outside normally scheduled days and times. Little concern if any, is given to the personal cost or inconvenience to the employees in question.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Team mentality. Cutting edge science and process development activities. Very different from typical biotechs.

    Cons

    Company stability fluctuates wildly due to stock price. New technology is taking longer for Dr's to become comfortable with than traditional biotech products.

    Pros

    As a newer company, there are many improvement projects in place and everyone is given the opportunity to participate in projects of their choice. There is also a relaxed workplace attitude.

    Cons

    There is a great deal of secrecy. Shift schedules are changed very often and without much notice. Many changes are made which make the job more difficult instead of resort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SOP changes should involve more input from the department with the most responsibilities as listed on the document.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
