    Pros

    Good Internal Training, Opportunities to advance if willing to relocate. New Quadravalent and Hexavalent vaccines should be fun to sell.

    Cons

    Less opportunity to advance without relocating, some metrics are inaccurate, less and less need for business acumen and scientific knowledge.

    Pros

    Good vacation time offered, mediocre medical

    Cons

    No diversity of age employment. A 30 and younger company, This company seeks only to hire college educated and they leave fast. Anyone over 50 wont advance. Too many chiefs not enough Indians. Management does not care to learn processes, and complaints go unheard. Good ol boys club bordering on discrimination. Not for someone who wants a long career. Turn over is high.

    Advice to Management

    Time to find out what the real complaints are or you will loose those you need to keep up with increasing process demands. Seriously look into advancement of your 50 plus employees. With a new CEO many employees hope for change, but won't count on it. Moral is low in production and filling departments.

    Competitive pay, great benefits, opportunity for flex hrs and/or telecommuting depending on department and supervisor.

    General lack of respect for subordinates, little to no interest in developing talent. Abuse of power by many mangers with no real support from HR. Moral is very low and many are seeking to leave just as I did.

    Pros

    good pay and benefits and vacation time. Leader decides everything. Good if you fit the profile and don't make waves. Business contributes to human health

    Cons

    Not very open to new ideas, or ideas generated from the bottom up. Needs improvement in diversity and inclusion rather than autocratic decision-making and arbitrary rewards. Good old boy network is dominant

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunity for diversity of people and ideas. The person at the top doesn't have to always be right or always have the best idea. Listen to and respect employees.
