    I worked at Epic Pharma full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - I consider the company is a first step getting into pharmaceutical industry, you can have broad experience in drug manufacturing, Quality Assurance and Quality Control.
    - location of the firm is really great, on boarder of NYC and Long Island, very convenient commute even you live in the city.

    Cons

    - Compensation isn't competitive enough for people to stay.
    - fast-paced environment and not much training for new employees. you need to learn on your own, and from "good" colleague.
    - not enough moving potentials

    I generally enjoyed working for this company, except for the long commute.

    I worked at Epic Pharma

    Pros

    Epic Pharma is a small company, so I got to meet most of the people there. There was not the constant performance reviews that you find at larger companies. Also, there was not the huge bureaucracy that you find at larger companies.

    Cons

    In my case I lived very far from my work place, so I wasted too much time traveling. The company had a quality control group and a Research and Development group. The company only manufactured generic drugs which limited its R and D.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide counseling for people who have psychological problems. This should be available near where the person lives and should not affect their employment. I think I had some problems which I am now working out with a therapist. I should have gotten counseling for these problems years ago.

    Employees, with the right leadership work as a team to get the job done and are like a family.

    Senior leadership needs a cohesive vision and mission.
