    Pros

    Very nice people and regular employees do not seem to be over worked as happens at other Pharma companies. Super nice folks.

    Cons

    Contingent workers can put in longer hours. Managers don't seem have a good sense of how long it takes to manage tasks and expect faster turnarounds and employees to have spare time to take on other projects. There is also some immaturity in dealing with people (talking behind people's backs and that kind of thing) but overall the professional environment is great. It's a really good place to work but like all companies has it's warts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs a better understanding of workloads and the time consuming nature of managing a production environment.

    Triple bottom line management & aspiration
    Pay & benefits, monetary & non-monetary
    Excellent revenue and stock growth
    Excellent pipeline

    Cons

    Continually crushing workload.
    Must make your own career path, and you can.
    Work/life balance yours to create
    Politics seemingly favored over performance when it comes to advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Beware of assuming that levers of past success are those of the future, they likely are not.
    Move with agilely to stay in step with customers' evolution in terms of how they want to do business versus holding on to what worked in the pas but which is passing away.
    Use advantages of smaller scale to compete more innovatively and agilely with larger competitors.
    Continue to work towards better favoring quality over quanitity in strategic and tactical execution and excellence across the organization
