    Pros

    Each department as a whole is well ran by experienced people who support their team members and seek professional development and fairness for their direct reports.

    Vacation time is generous (Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve - New Years Day)

    Cons

    While each department is headed by experienced and caring people they are often over-ruled by the CEO. There is minimal room for professional development, promotions and fair raises are non-existent. CEO excessively micro-manages each department.

    Advice to Management

    To the CEO: Trust your team and the key leaders you have put into place to manage their departments.

  2. Highest ethical values and genuine patient focu

    Pros

    The company -- all of the staff from the CEO all the way through the organization -- are committed to do what's right for patients. And to doing what's right in general (eg, high ethical position).

    The company is fiscally conservative while still understanding that you have to spend money (wisely) to make money. The pay isn't what you might get at big pharma but you get all the benefits of working for a small company (no bureaucracy, quick & fact-based decision-making, etc.) with the security of a company that has a healthy revenue stream.

    Management truly care about the staff.

    The pipeline is excellent.

    The people are exceptional and the staff is highly diverse - unlike I've ever seen and I think that makes it a stronger and better place to work. Transparency is important and staff retention is a priority.

    Free breakfast / bring your dog to work on Friday is a fun thing.

    Cons

    It's a virtual company so sometimes it feels hard to "own" the work. Telecommuting is not an option - reflective the CEO's philosophy that you need to be present to be effective -- and that might be a negative for some people (but not for me).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reward and value the hard-working staff who uphold the values and ideals of the company.
