    Pros

    *Great training and education, especially if you're fresh off college
    *Competitive pay and healthcare benefits
    *Friendly colleagues
    *Inspiring CSO
    *High standards from managers, which is a good thing if you truly want to improve and learn

    Cons

    *Many clinical trial failures, which can take a toll on your psychology
    *Expect to work long hours if you have project deadlines

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They try to keep you if they can (i.e. if they have money). Very inspiring and scientifically savvy people here. But a lot of times the drug industry relies on luck.
