They don't like to help people move to areas of the world they may want to work in. I have the desire to go overseas and they aren't very supportive of that.

    Pros

    Overall salary and benefits are good. Strong emphasis on safety. Working alongside professional people is great. Stable industry has not been overly affected by economy during the recent recession.

    Cons

    The current executive management has a mission of driving productivity down by creating open work areas with a staggering amount of distractions. People are saying "we need quiet areas to work" and management just keeps repeating, "This is a pleasant place to work. Look at how pretty it is."

    The interior design team spends more time talking about creating an office that "looks good" instead of fostering an environment for getting things done. A whole building full of cubicles was built with poor ergonomics. There is not enough room to put your legs out in front of you underneath your desk and none of the cubicles were equipped with keyboard trays. Then a senior executive stands up in a safety meeting and says "we need be concerned about repetitive stress injuries". Disconnect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The continuing development of herbicide-resistant plants and Bt-resistant
    insects is a strong warning that the future of biotechnology is likely get
    rougher, not smoother.

    If you want better productivity, reduce distractions. Things like emails, talkers, phones, meetings, paperwork, etc.
