    Pros

    Employees are great, salary is excellent

    Cons

    The top notch upper management of years past is gone. CEO is scattershot with actions.
    If the drug ever makes it big time, then this place will take off again.

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy and responsibility.
    Able to switch departments and learn new skill sets.
    Managers are often "in the trenches" with you.
    Collegial atmosphere.

    Cons

    Management is becoming multi tiered.
    The final decision about promotions are made by upper management who may not even know you.
    Too many meetings and some are redundant.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward talent even when a PhD isn't part of the person's background.
