Pros

GREAT experience, lot's of fun and challenging. People stay extremely spportive and really want you to do your best.
People around you are all very smart.

Cons

People expect a lot from you and you really need to be focused the entire time, despite goodies and distractions. They are generally passive aggressive, so you should be aware that if you haven't met expectations, management be very unhappy with you, even if they won't say it explicitly.

Advice to Management

Good Job, means "Good Job", not see you later!

    Smartest minds in the world about disease areas and a culture that is focused on helping patients and keeping employees happy; Lots of on-site amenities like a full gym, shuttles that bring you to work, subsidized cafeterias with multiple healthy, delicious options.
