Great place to work, but everybody's stressed out

Scientist (Current Employee)
South San Francisco, CA

Pros"In business for life", making a difference in patients' lives, fun co-workers, plenty of opportunity, great perks/benefits, booming business, work-life balance.

ConsToo much work/ too little resources, tightening budgets, no communication regarding small layoffs, increasingly political landscape, nearly constant access to junk food(!).

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't lay people off in 2011 if you're planning on increasing headcount in 2012, 2013, and 2014!!!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
