    Pros

    Excellent Staff/Peers, GREAT Manager of IT Mathew Storms, GREAT Supervisor but gone now John Miele. Well run lean company, above average benefits, treat employees extremely well. Very Competitive wages too.

    Cons

    Because they are a Pharmaceutical Company, their livelihood depends on inventing/developing new products. If their Scientists don't come up with a "Wonder Drug" every 4-5 years, stability is an issue from a employment perspective.

    TOO MUCH documentation to the point of overkill (and I was in the Military 10 Years, so that's saying something). There is duplication and excessive bureaucracy which eventually HAS to effect their bottom line, which if effectively minimized/managed, could save the company enough $$$ to keep more employees on.

    Pros

    Reasonable benefits, summer hours, low expectations make it easy to succeed internally

    Cons

    Horrible senior leadership who never learn from their mistakes. Incompetent decision-making at the top, particularly in R&D. Communication only as a last resort and usually by email or group meeting. Bad news is never given one on one. Unprofessional in every sense of the word. Moral is terrible there and they don't care. Human resources is the worst I have ever experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and let someone competent try to save that company

  9. Very poor recognition and pay for junior-level employees.

    Appreciate all your staff, especially junior members!
