    Pros

    Great pay, nice people, and generous travel allowances ! Thanks for the memories !

    Cons

    A bit heavy on the contract employee side of things in California and a little behind the times in terms of technology.

    Advice to Management

    Investing a little more in updating your technology would improve your products and efficiencies and thereby increase customer and employee satisfaction which in turn would equal a greater return to the bottom line.

    Pros

    Lots to do at work so you're rarely bored. Nice campus. Convenient location off the highway. I was paid well for being a recent graduate (1 year out of university when hired) and promoted quickly out of my contractor position to a senior analyst. My particular team was very stressful but we all got along great and worked together really well.

    Cons

    I worked in Quality, which is one of the most stressful departments you can work in, especially in the pharma industry. People complained all the time, were overworked, and under a lot of pressure. There was so much drama within the company. Talent identification is poor to say the least. There's a lot of turnaround, even at VP levels. I am in my 20s and had no coworkers around my age.

    Advice to Management

    Give your reports clear direction. Hire more motivated people. Smile. Make this place a place of work that people can enjoy or at least tolerate. We don't want to work in an Upton Sinclair novel.
