    I worked at Pharma Medica Research full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The only thing I can think of is the challenge of working with a "start-up"

    Cons

    Management is in flux. There is an inconsistency in direction, and no clear guidance from upper management. Individuals tend to let personal feelings and attitudes dictate how they perform their jobs, rather than according to company policies

    President is accessible, eg eats lunch with employees; hard work recognized and promoted; lots of work so you'll quickly build a good resume

    The job market for medical writers is expanding. Time to step up your pay to reduce turnover.
