    Pros

    Everyone is very pleasant and the company atmosphere is upbeat and welcoming. This is a lab and procedures must be adhered to specifically, but that doesn't mean that it can't be pleasant or fun. Flexible shifts and available weekend shifts are a plus. Great benefits!!

    Cons

    I can not think of any real cons to working for Wuxi.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Having an Activities Committee that plans fun events and fundraising to help the community is a great idea and a huge "pick me up' for all employees.

    Pros

    Participated in global clinical trials and worked with PRA US. The management team was very nice and the team was growing rapidly.

    Cons

    I feel the training for new bees are not enough. Though I am an experienced SAS programmer, I don't need two much training. But for fresh graduates, the starting stage was not easy enough.

    Advice to Management

    More time could be spent on training green hands and the working schedule could be flexible.
