Pros

Compensation! It is a big company and has name recognition. Palo Alto has a really nice campus.

Cons

Unfair/unbalance workload (Depends on the group you are in). Do not have realistic timelines on projects. People are expected to work overtime all the time. At the same time, some other group has no timeline and layback. People get penalized for working hard while some people are getting free rides all the time.

Advice to Management

Please listen to your people and be fair. Please work on morale. People are restless and they are staying for the compensation only. Performance review gets too complicated and calibration does not work well.

  1. Many resources and interesting work. Large company bureacracy is an issue.

    Pros

    Great network of scientists who in general are dedicated. Diverse cultural background of employees and interests. Great to be in the Bay Area close to many biotech and technology firms. Many interesting scientific and clinical problems with fairly good resources to explore solutions. Employees are generally happy and non-toxic and there is general cooperation.

    Cons

    Has some long time employees that are in positions of power and not competent or innovative. Basel in particular is a very non-productive, slow, and bureaucratic in their approaches. Very poor mechanisms to deal with bad senior management. Conflict is kept hidden and many back-room deals and negotiations.

    Advice to Management

    Identify and distinguish between the most productive employees and dead weight. Empower employees more and fund and reward more innovation.

  2. Balance of positives and negatives. Negative issues are big ones though.
