Good company overall but overall work satisfaction depends on region where you are working.

Pros

Worldwide operations offer many opportunities.

Cons

Some senior management worked their way up through the ranks but received little management training other than reporting. It can seem like a large mom and pop company where decisions are made based on personal relationships not performance.

    Pros

    Interesting drugs and antibodies to work on, some of which gain FDA approval.

    Cons

    The work pace is grueling. No advancement after nearly 5 years. Demotions are more common than promotions. Management does not care about growing their workers, just uses them up and spits them out. Employees are nice, but burned out from the pace. Moral is, on the whole, abysmal. Tattling is common between a select few workers and management, making for a environment where trust is not present.

    Advice to Management

    Offer some incentive to your workers so that the best ones stay instead of having to leave.

    Pros

    For the first half of the month people are fairly laid back and not too pushy about work. There is an enjoyable work dynamic with co-workers.

    Cons

    The last week of every month is a mad dash to complete work. Poor communication between project engineers, lab techs, sales. Very repetitive work Management is usually not satisfied with amount of work completed. Management gets a bonus when I go beyond quota, but I see no extra pay

    Advice to Management

    When a team goes beyond the months quota, reward the entire team, not just the team manager. Figure out a better way of communicating between project engineers, sales, management, etc
