    Pros

    Excellent team atmosphere Great pay Excellent Advancement opportunities

    Cons

    Could have more structured training. Senior coworkers and management are extremely knowledgeable and always willing to help. You just have to ask. Not much of a con, just the facts of life in sales.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Very Innovative Company. The company has found a niche in the market in which they can provide pharmaceutical companies resources at a discount and without long term commitment.

    Cons

    It's a Contract Company. There's is limited opportunity to grow and move up the corporate ladder. Also, there is a constant turnover, so there is very little corporate culture.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat the employees like a number

    Pros

    Great company culture, incentives, bonuses (for perm employees only), great training, lunches, employee appreciation events, etc.

    Cons

    Very busy, work has come first, temp and contract employees are treated like trash, and favortism could be worse but its present nonetheless.

    Advice to Management

    Treat ALL employees EQUALLY.. perm contract and temp.. all the same team working towards the same mission!!! It would be nice if temps and contractors could be converted especially after a few years on the job. Also, stop taking so many contracts with extremely tight turnaround times, especially when its high volume which is majority of the time.. or convert a few temps or contractors as you see the same volume or even more now in business.
