Very Conservative Company

Principal Data Manager (Current Employee)

ProsGood pipeline, marketable drugs, some very talented people

ConsFrom a contractor's view: You will be treated like a contractor,you will not be allowed to make up holiday time,etc, your experience and knowledge will be undermined by FT employees and management, very political, a "don't rock the boat" environment, you will not be allowed to make up holiday time,etc .A true "Favoritism" dynamic

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Too much chaos and now analysis paralysis
