Pros

The senior management at the Northborough site was very intelligent and more than willing to share information with employees.

The human resources department and senior management provided a good work/life balance. For example, flex time was offered, and an employee assistance program was provided. There were also a number of company sponsored events (e.g. a softball team, family outings) that were good for morale.

Cons

Compensation was generally below the level of other companies in the area. In a biotech hotbed like Massachusetts, it was difficult to retain employees when salaries were for the most part not competitive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Align salaries with current trends in the industry.

    Pros

    There are very good scientists there and good culture among the scientists.

    Cons

    The current environment and the environment in Pharma in general is poor at the moment. There is very little confidence about job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to give the average scientist a feeling of security in their job.
