    I worked at United Therapeutics as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good Pay and good Cafe on site

    Cons

    This company is the worst ran company I have ever seen. If you get hired as a contractor you will be treated like you are less then human. even by other members of the same department even though you are doing the same work. not one of my connections around the world has ever heard of treatment this bad.

    DO NOT WORK HERE If hired as a contractor and don't fall for the "we plan on making you a perm employee"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start firing some lazy workers. People that have the capability to do stuff but refuse because it isn't there job is sad.

    Pros

    fast pace, good benefits, great incentives, hard work is recognized - really interesting science, work is meaningful i.e. there is a clear link to improving the lives of others - really great amenities (on site gym, child care, fun activities for employees) & other services.

    can be an imbalance in workload between functions - some seem less strained than others/expectations seem imbalanced sometimes; headcount tight

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to work on improving communication across the company

    Pros

    The benefits to working at this company are spectacular. A smart employee can save a decent amount of money through the excellent stock options system, wonderful health benefits and a competitive salary.

    Cons

    Headcount is kept tight, so you truly earn the money you make, with several weeks containing overtime and weekend work.
