Pros

You'll find good people at Franklin Plaza in Philadelphia. Employees are ethical and strive to be fully compliant to FDA regulations. A strategic focus dominates business operations.

Cons

Strategically strong, culturally weak. Morale has been battered by external issues such as Avandia and by never-ending corporate restructuring. Building is an absolute dump.

Advice to Management

You employees are the first customers you should focus on. Employees want this be a great, successful company, but it's painfully obvious that possibly except for Andrew, senior management is largely learning on the job.
