    Pros

    People seem to generally care and want you to succeed. Take pride in their work ethic. Like a high level of transparency and accountability.

    Cons

    So far none but I am new.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making the new hires and santarus reps feel like they are still a "family"

    Pros

    Great company, top management is warm and caring (Carolyn), good salary for company of this size.

    Cons

    Folks were promoted too quickly and their sense of insecutiry put heavy toll on others. Workload is too much even for routine workholics.

    Advice to Management

    Whenever you promote your staff send them to leadership/management training so that they can mend well into the senior roles.
