    Former Employee - Scientist in Hunt Valley, MD

    I worked at PII full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Stable growth, decent health and 401k benefit.

    Cons

    Company doesn't offer a good competitive salary. They know they can do that due to lack of pharmaceutical company in the area. Also, pay cheap labor for people on H1B visa, so people who work there are very miserable since they know they have to stick around for 5 years until they get the green card.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the workplace more enjoyable. Company picnic? Rewards of some sorts? So employees want to contribute to company growth.

    I worked at PII full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    stable, medical and vacation times benefits

    Cons

    Private company with lots of owner's family members in senior management positions. Not much opportunities careerwise. cameras everywhere, the owner would somehow look from outside of the window without your knowledge. He makes decisions about raises for everyone.If you are someone waiting to get green card then you get way below market salary, the company makes a lot of money with cheap labor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wouldn't listen to me anyway.
