    Pros

    The projects are very interesting, especially on the pharma side. However, if pharmaceutical modeling interests you, you should look inside the industry itself. The people here are smart and have built some lasting customer relationships.

    Cons

    It is apparent from the other reviews that everyone experiences the same problems here. Mostly, the management environment is extremely poor and has been for a decade since the company expanded beyond 5 people. Aside from many problems, the founders realize that they have very little management experience but refuse to do anything about it. It mostly manifests in the form of personal and career development, something that no one at the company cares about. Knowledge is not passed on until it is absolutely necessary and no one goes to conferences or actively networks with professionals. The company environment is one of constant panic-mode project execution but with haphazard project planning and management. The executives do not want to be managers, they want to execute projects and will never relinquish control over the details of projects that other people are executing. They do not put forth clear expectations but internally expect that you will do projects exactly as they would, all the while not understanding why you cant do the project in the amount of time that they think they could. The compensation is well below par and benefits are almost non-existent. This is a consulting environment without the benefit of a consulting salary or strong leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Glen, the CEO, constantly talks about expanding the company but that will never happen. After 15 years and with ample amounts of work, the turnover rate is extremely high and any attempt to bring up the poor management conditions is rejected by the executives or simply ignored. It is easy to assume that everything is fine when there are projects to do, but there is almost no one who has worked here for fewer than 8 years but more than 3.
