    Pros

    Great mission; solid benefits; challenging work; beautiful campus - only a few of the many reasons this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    High regulatory scrutiny means the pace of change is slow and innovation is difficult. This is no different than the rest of the Pharmaceutical industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify decision-making and governance: the lack of clarity can stifle progress.
