Is not a bad company as long as you have a reasonable manager

Scientist II (Former Employee) Eugene, OR

Pros-My group of coworkers had a lot of characters in it
-Good Work life balance, do your work and you will have plenty of time for yourself outside of work

Cons-Extremely political with anyone at or above a manager level
-Benefits package was average, they were definitely not trying to lead the curve in that area
-If you got stuck with a bad manager, it could ruin your career prospect (that can be said about anyplace)
-Many technical people are promoted to middle management positions with little to no social/people/management skills
-

Advice to Senior ManagementIt seems like management is being advised by harvard graduate consultant types with little or no knowledge of the biotech industries.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: Many great scientists and engineers working at the great campus with gym and park,.… Cons: Main growth is by numerous acquisition rather than innovation. It causes strong sense of division between corporate and acquired companies, and different… Advice to Senior Management: Profit is important. Gaining employee loyalty is priceless.
