    I worked at OSI Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    What an amazing place to work! Great people, compelling corporate vision and wonderful benefits! Diverse and brilliant coworkers that made going to work a joy.

    Cons

    OSI Pharmaceuticals was bought out by Astellas Pharmaceuticals and the company was never the same after that. The company eventually closed it's doors. Very unfortunate!


  2. My first real job before I left for bigger and better things

    Pros

    Greatest chemistry department I worked for. Had great managers who looked out for my success. Promoted multiple times. Benefits top notch. All the access you need to do research. Great young talent. Great after hours with co workers. Best job for a young person.

    Cons

    The buying of eyetech. Worst deal of the century. It ate up financing and moral. It was the downfall of a great biotech.

    Advice to Management

    Company no longer exists so what is the use

    Pros

    A great place to work where everyone is friendly. They appreciate there employees and plan fun events and outings each year. The facility is very nice and clean.

    Cons

    I never really felt any downsides working there. However the surrounding area is very industrialized and is prone to heavy traffic.

    Pros

    A highly talented work force, dedicated to developing new cancer treatments. Teams were supportive and eager to share information with a strong spirit of camaraderie. Benefits were good if only at the level of industry standard.

    Cons

    Management decision making was often difficult to fathom, leading to changes in direction and focus, resulting in a morale decline that impacted the whole company, likely setting up the company for its ultimate acquisition by Astellas.

    I don't understand the sick leave policy. But overall, not too much downside. So far, liking it there.

    Advice to Management

    I haven't been there along to give advice to management. I may update this in the future.

    Pros

    The hours are very flexible, which provide a great work/life balance. It offers great benefits such as tuition reimbursements, medical/dental insurance.

    Cons

    It lack mobility. I find it difficult to promote out of your department and venture into another area of business.

    Advice to Management

    The company should provide a more frequent formal feedback to employees so they know what and how they can better contribute to the success of the company
