overly bureaucratic but high quality science and well integrated multicultural work force

Lab Head (Current Employee) Cambridge, MA

ProsStylish, European organisation. The company pays attention to detail whether it is science, regulatory, PR or employee satisfaction. Social in an American scale.

ConsLack of uniform standards in operation. One has to learn how to interact with individual departments. Supervisors often create stressful microenvironment and associates have little protection but seeking other jobs. Very male heavy management.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe won't listen. Joe Jimenez is only recently took over leadership and too soon to tell. He may be too American (blunt and profit centric) for a European (more socially committed workplace) company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
