Pros

The company is a good stepping stone. Collaboration across departments is commendable. The company has a good bunch of scientists.

Cons

A lack of motivation, compensation and teamwork is rampant. The company needs not better scientists, but better managers who are good scientists.

    Pros

    Good benefits and a good pipeline. They have a work from home policy and flex-time. Free gym and the on-site health care is great.

    Cons

    No job growth, limited career development. Promises of promotions, and then they don't go through when the time comes. Lack of training or definitive policies. Each team does the same task different ways. Poor management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to your people. Communicate with them- ask them what they need to make their job better. Appreciate and respect your people and reward them for a job well-done!

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Interesting research. Not much else.

    Cons

    The company must offer excellent benefits to compensate for the toxic work environment.
    -Poor leadership
    -back stabbing politics
    -leaders (want-to-be leaders) with little or no experience
    -no work-life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a few leadership courses. Value your people or you will continue to see them leave the company.
