One of the few places in pharma they are hiring

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Strong cash position, staffing up, not downsizing yet

Cons

If you are your own man/woman look out. Micromanagement that is downright annoying. If you were not there at the beginning your experience will be second class. Duplicity and backstabbing are the rule in FRI.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The organization is upside down, you hire experienced people from great companies, but ignore them regularly. I would not be able to encourage someone I respected to work here, unless they were looking for a shorter leash.

    Pros

    management will reward good work; congenial work environment; people are younger than in the rest of Pharma; good location

    Cons

    small company management with big Pharma goals; marketing has a big voice there; your career advancement highly depends on who's advocating for you from above, so politics plays a big role; flexible work options not allowed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep rewarding good work to keep your talented employees; allow for flexible work options for those who put in extra time and effort for the company

    Good depending on who you know. Just OK otherwise.

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    People are smart, at the lower levels at least. Can't speak for upper management.

    People are also hard-working and collaborative.

    Cons

    Rampant micromanagers every where. Sink or swim mentality, and it is difficult to push innovative marketing tactics through the approval process. Analysis paralysis. Not into risk taking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to embrace the changing market environment, and get with the times! Stop being such stick in the muds, please!
