Pros

flexible working hours, as long as you get the job done, no one really cares when you come in and when you leave. You can work from home as well. 20% + of the employees are decentralized.

Cons

chaos in financial and operational systems, currently. too many highly paid directors who are only good at talking, but not real working. High turnover rate, over-burned work bees.

Advice to Management

Hire and keep the good employees!

    Pros

    Good to get "regulated company" credentials

    Cons

    Promotions and career success are based on getting highly ranked political allies. Quality of work means nothing. If you are not favored you will be overlooked, verbally abused, and used as a convenient excuse when things go wrong

    Advice to Management

    The abusive and political culture comes from the top down.

    Pros

    Projects are interesting Dealing with people in over 54 countries is very interesting Company is involved in cutting edge clinical research Pay is around industry average A lot of room for horizontal movement and promotions

    Cons

    Management expectations of hard working employees is too high. Low performers are allowed to stay low at the expense of the good workers Workload is intense and does not allow for work-life balance. Burn-out is frequent. Working 60 hours a week is not uncommon Some senior managers are borderline abusive in their language towards their employees

    Advice to Management

    Place more of an emphasis on work-life balance Stop running so many concurrent projects using the same resources - the pace is unsustainable
