    Pros

    The worker bees are great (CRAs, CSCs, etc). The research is interesting.

    Cons

    The managers are sneaky, two-faced, and gossipy. They have ruined the culture of this office. If you are a potential CRA or DM, RUN AWAY NOW.

    New Leadership came from outside the pharma industry

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Other than that Avery cutthroat and stab your colleague in the back culture. People will
    Do anything to try and get ahead.

    Cons

    Lack of ethics. Use clinical studies to promote sales which is illegal. When confronted about this they look the other way and threaten you. Sales reps will screw you over in a heartbeat. Absolutely no camaraderie or feeing of being a part of a team. Extremely low morale. Pay raises are minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the good ol boy network and recognize actual talent and people who add value. Care about your employees and develop them.
