Historic organization with a strong public health mission - but watch out for falling rocks.

I have been working at The United States Pharmacopeia

ProsGreat benefits and stability. You could work there your entire career - if you wanted to - without working very hard at all. Government mentality, 37.5 hour work week. Half-days on Friday during the summer.

ConsPoor leadership. Lack of accountability. What the CEO wants, the CEO gets, even if it makes zero business sense. Disagree at your own risk. Headed for trouble with the pharma industry. Could be obsolete in the next 5-10 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementDoesn't matter. They wouldn't listen anyway.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
