    Pros

    Some people really care and will do everything they can to help you.

    Cons

    Not sure how fake the previous review is, but I'll say extremely fake. Clean and spacious work environment? Gym? You mean our cube farm (which is clean) and our fitness "center" which is an old storage room with a stepper and a treadmill? Company Outings? Our one summer event and our lame holiday party? There is a definite atmosphere of favoritism. This is a small enough company that everyone knows who isn't pulling their weight or who is having a tantrum, but no one ever does anything about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fresh blood. Fresh blood! We need honesty from our leadership. We need a new CEO that can articulate what we are doing. Please take into account that you don't know everything about our work environment and coworkers, and listen to the worker bees. We make the place run. You don't. You really don't. I'm so very tired of hanging on to see us get to the next level when I see poor decisions pushing us back down into the mud.

    Pros

    Some people are really engaged and love their jobs. The worker bees are great to be around and make work good.

    Cons

    HR department doesn't support raises or increasing benefits. Upper management is mostly seen as inept. Drugs are not advancing into the clinic. CEO talks about strategy but doesn't say what that strategy is. CEO talks like everything is great, but seems upset with everything. Don't see any career advancement in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to erase the culture of retaliation if an employee brings up honest issues - you will be seen as a problem. Stop saying we can't afford to do certain benefits and make it happen. We don't believe you when we can see what you make.
