Pros

Great Company to work for. Benifits are amazing. Pay is rock solid. Opportunities are fantastic and the people are the best i have ever worked with!

Cons

Huntsville Al isn't exactly the most interesting place to work. The summers here are unbearably hot and the city has very little to offer in the way of entertainment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Weed out the one or ones that have brought down moral. There is one in particular at the HSV site that has a very high turnover rate and one would think Upper Management would get a clue as to the real problem.

    Pros

    Strong collaboration. CEO has saved the company from disaster after Pfizer pulled out.

    Cons

    No career development opportunities in my department. I'm working 10 hours day and am answering emails 18/7 a day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that your mid level managers are worthy of leading your lower level employees.
