      Demoralizing

      Pros

      Decent starting salary and appropriate benefits

      Cons

      Not a great place for males, too many redundant processes, old school of thought. Upper management and middle management live in different realities, the grunts - enough said. Either work in mid/high or upper management or get ready to be stepped on.

      Former Contractor, more than 1 year

      Great company, not much room to grow as a contractor

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great way to get some early experience at a leading pharma company. Flexible schedule and work from home.

      Cons

      - Minimal to no benefits - Contractors encouraged to work during holidays - Although improving, culture around celebrating good work is not present on an individual level. Results only recognized at a team level - As a contractor, company has no reason to be invested in your professional development - Recruiters will pitch a high conversion rate to permanent employees. I saw no indication that this was true for the team I was working on - Mistakes highlighted and not tolerated/utilized as learning opportunities. Consistent quality work unrecognized. - Lack of unity among adjacent teams - Disconnect between upper management and the results they hope to see and the work it actually requires at ground level to obtain results

      Pros

      Everyone was so helpful and kind to one another, it was a fantastic environment to work in!

      Cons

      Some of the upper management tended to give the lab workers a bit too many projects and it seemed overwhelming and counterproductive at times.
