IT company that sells drugs...

Associate Scientist (Current Employee)
Research Triangle Park, NC

ProsGood pay, excellent benefits, the people I worked with were great!!!

I'd like to go back...

ConsI would have given 5 stars except there is ALWAYS the threat of layoffs.

Andrew Witty took over, he got on stage and bragged about how good a job we had done, how good a shape the company was in, how much cash the company had available. Then a week later he announced 5,000 jobcuts. You guessed it, my "position was eliminated".

Advice to Senior ManagementNo company ever cost-cut its way to good R&D.
