    Wonderful company, very meaningful and rewarding.

    Research Assistant (Former Employee) Providence, RI

    ProsWomen and Infants is a very wonderful company, which I think is very committed to providing the best possible service to their patients and the scientific community. I really liked my coworkers there, everyone was very friendly, committed, and positive. The work was stimulating and I felt like I was contributing. Also, the benefits are outstanding, good insurance and a huge amount of paid time off right from the start!

    ConsI sometimes felt like there was a lot of pressure to go "above and beyond" the job description, and even what the patients wanted (calling on weekends and evenings to follow-up). Also the pay is manageable, but not great.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI do wish their were less pressure, as described in the cons.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Has its ups and downs

    Database Coordinator/Analyst (Former Employee)

    ProsComfortable work environment
    Good benefits
    Mostly pleasant co-workers who are easy to work with
    Good amount of autonomy (depending on position)
    Part of a larger organization, with ability to move around

    ConsBureaucratic
    Little to no career development
    Some are more equal than others
    Unforgiving HR dept.
    Low pay relative to other industries
    Career progress/raises/promotions based solely on a black and white job description developed by HR dept, often outdated or inaccurate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop written guidelines for navigating the bureaucracy, provide career development and goals for receiving promotions, allow advancement based on merit rather than letters after a person's name.
