Pros

Great work/life balance; wonderful, really intelligent people to work with - a lot of learning experiences.

Cons

Difficult to move internally. I wanted to explore other opportunities and found they wanted to pull in external employees who better fit the mold.

Advice to Management

Look at your internal workforce and find ways to help them grow and develop.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits were good and the coworkers were fun. I found that the flexibility in scheduling was very helpful as the mother of 2 young children.

    Cons

    There was jno ownership of your work and little opportunity to advance or learn. Only followed strict SOPs and were encouraged not to think about the science behind the work.

    Advice to Management

    take a better look at the wealth of people working for you and use their knowledge rather than stifiling it.
