    Pros

    Family atmosphere, flexible work schedule, good compensation, friendly people, able to learn and have discussions on new scientific information, free fruits and breakfast items.

    Cons

    political, very little mentoring and support, not action oriented, not many people smiled in the hallway, many scientists were not necessarily aligned with the business goals so they worked on their own projects.

    Advice to Management

    Smart, scientific people don't always make the best managers and leaders to drive the business to success.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are competitive; senior executive team tries to be transparent about company progress, goals and future direction; senior executive team tries to implement new policies based on yearly surveys that benefit employees

    Cons

    Middle management lacks accountability and does not live up to the company's mission or the promises of the senior executive team; poor decision making at the top, poor and sometimes total lack of planning which means that employees are always scrambling to accomplish goals with little time to spare; due to economic climate, company is choosing to outsource a lot of core functions which will mean less quality

    Advice to Management

    Middle management should be reassessed; implement 360 reviews to get a better understanding of how managers are actually performing
