Creativity and innovation is encouraged

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) East Hanover, NJ

ProsGreat talent pool, innovative mindset, optimistic attitudes. The community of scientists is very intelligent - easy to find like minded colleagues. People are interested to discuss new ideas. If you find the right group of people who support your ideas, you can get a lot done.

ConsSome snobbish attitudes. have to be from the "Ivy" to get automatic credibility. Everybody else has to earn it. "visibility" is a must for being promoted.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook beyond the surface when assessing leadership capabilities. Be serious about performance management. Promote women and minorities into leadership roles.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
