Good People, Good Compensation, Career progression limited

Medical Representative (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

ProsWell looked after. A very warm friendly culture. Compensation and benefits are good. Management decisions seem sound and in touch with the needs of the business. Keep your head down and you can find yourself on a good salary very quickly.

ConsMaybe a little to warm and comfortable for those looking for a fast paced career. Career progression opportunities are very limited. Getting into head office roles from the field is tough. Support for further qualifications is seemingly non existent (MBA etc).

Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe a graduate fast track type programme is needed to attract and retain high calibre graduates.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: Very talented people working in the labs, among the smartest in the world. Very well run… Cons: Opportunities are limited by your education level. Appeared the politics were in play much more… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
