    Highly satisfactory

    Entry Level (Current Employee) Tuscaloosa, AL

    Conssome people working there are not smart up to the mark

    Advice to Senior ManagementEvery worker should be honoured by their performance

    Corporate politics, more management than workers

    Histological Technician (Current Employee) Winston-Salem, NC

    ProsGood benefits and excellent pay or golden handcuffs.

    ConsWorkload is unreasonable. High stress and high volume that is centered on a small amount of people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement has no idea how to manage. It is the buddy system and only "yes men" are rewarded regardless of education and experience. If you are liked they will give you the moon. People who work hard and produce are not rewarded or recognized.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Senior management incompetence

    Senior Scientist (Former Employee)

    ProsLevel of flexibility, good mid-level management, interesting science, good technology, good academic collaborators

    Consfavouritism, incompetent management, people who dont know what they dont know and who dont care that they dont know, lack of openess, total lack of responsibility

    Advice to Senior Managementreplace research management with scientists who care and understand drug development and really passionate about bringing new medicines to patients
    focus on values rather then just set of skills
    improve communication between groups, be less process oriented and more people oriented

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fantastic bio-tech company that was restricted by Wall Street

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat work environment. Open lines of communications with top management. Superb talent among sales force. Very generous for top performers.

    ConsPoor execution of bringing new products to the market. Could have been the top critical care/ hospital based company. No vision for the future after generic entrance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLimit the influence of the Wall Street on the company's managerial decisions. Focus on "boutique" application of human anti-body technology rather than on "cure for all" approach.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
