Pros

- For the most part, everyone here is "good people".
- Pay is competitive with industry.
- Interesting work, making an effort to keep up with current technology.
- Good, stable environment, can't take that for granted these days.
- In growth mode. Lot's of work to be done.
- Massachusetts culture.

Cons

- Massachusetts culture.
- Sometimes it feels just a little too generic, it's very corporate here.
- Very much an international company, you will find yourself working past 8 hours just to be in the same time zone as some of your co-workers. Getting things done across time zones and differing work cultures and communication styles can be challenging at times.
- You will work hard, your ability to line up tasks, prioritize and get things done needs to be clean and efficient. But once you have that down things are pretty stable. It really depends on who your manager is, but that's true everywhere.
- There's a lot to be done here and there is an effort to bring in new people with fresh talent to stir up the entrenched culture. Overall Biopharma and CRO's have survived the bad economy relatively intact, but some people are a little too comfortable as a result.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep hiring middle and upper level managers who aren't afraid of change, but also understand and value the importance of people. Strive to keep the right balance.
