Pros

Rewarding to work at a company that knows what they are doing and are good at it. Good at team work. People work together , help each other ,and are not competitive. Good benefits, bonuses every year.

Cons

Feed back on performance is lacking. Career path is lacking. Not clear why some people are promoted quickly and other solid performers seem to take much longer or not at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put people in positions that deserve to be there and will have respect from peers. Don't expect us to "train up".

    Pros

    Good science. Generally, the people are nice and there is a low jerk quotient. But the jerks that are there are some of the finest specimens.

    Cons

    Lack of respect by senior management. They have been there too long and have a sense of entitlement. It's an old boys club at the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new blood. Get competent people to lead. Respect and honor the hard work done in the trenches daily. Give credit where credit is due.

    Pros

    Good benefits and employee programs. Good working environment. Strong on cross-functional, global teamwork. Significant opportunities to meet and work with scientists from R&D sites in other countries.

    Cons

    Same R&D management team in place for 20+ years. Slow to promote consistent performers, but very quick to promote those perceived as rising stars.
