    Pros

    NONE ... There really iisn't anything that is that great to mentilon and there really aren't any company perks.

    Cons

    EXTREMELY LONG HOURS ! Employees are overworked and management thinks nothing of getting rid of employees and makes up reasons to get rid of people.

    Advice to Management

    EVER THINK OF WORK/LIFE BALANCE???

    Pros

    Pros: Flexible with hours. Good amount of vacation. Knowledgeable scientists in the area of RNA.

    Cons

    Cons: The upper management seems to continue to push PTC-124 through clinical trials. Although it has failed multiple times, it appears management is too emotionally involved to know when to invest resources in something something more promising. This may eventually cause some problems with the survivability of the company. The level of nepotism in this company is more than I have experienced in any other work experience. We went multiple years without a pay increase.

    Pros

    Great science, flexibility, advancement opportunities and family atmosphere. Location is excellent, close to major transportation.

    Cons

    Company is downsizing and may not be around in the future. Relies too much on external funding and when it dried up, the money has run out.
