    Pros

    Good place to gain a lot of experience in the pharmaceutical/cell culture industry, especially if you do not have a family to worry about and don't mind working crazy hours. You work with various cellular therapy clients that could potentially lead to professional connections should you decide to apply to a different company. This job will teach you time management skills (or not depending on the type of person you are). Also a great place if you are the type who likes to be busy all the time. Pleasant coworkers and management.

    Cons

    Advancement is slow. Poor benefits and pay. If you have a family, I would not recommend this place due to unpredictable hours. Hours are the reason I can't do many extra activities outside of work. Everything is last minute and even though the management people-wise are great, they are not so good at taking on different tasks at once and if something doesn't get done, the technicians are usually blamed even though the techs' primary responsibility is lab work over paperwork. People are on different pages when it comes to training which can be an issue when we go commercial.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more supervisors, people to review batch records exclusively. Hire people to do ALL of the training so everyone is on the same page. Figure out some strategy to prevent things from being last minute. Hopefully this can happen.

    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.
