    Greater goal if worth the sacrifice

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Getting to work with some of the greatest and brightest
    - Learning quite a bit about bio-tech industry
    - Seeing science "happen" in front of your eyes

    Cons- Silo mentality is present
    - Unclear future path

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is the key and being tough on your employees is OK from time to time - getting people to work together is going to be your biggest challenge in the next 3-5 years.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
