    I have been working at Actelion Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is an excellent opportunity for anyone who strives to succeed. They offer great benefits and wages. A work environment where you can use your skill sets to accomplish your tasks and projects. They hold true to most of their core values.

    Cons

    Sometimes Actelion loses its way when communicating from Senior Management to their direct reports./
    Within IT, Actelion has under gone many re-orgs. I am not sure if that is the norm but it does cause frustration. However, the company is still in its infancy.

    Pros

    Competitive salary and bonus if you work hard and perform well. Actelion values family - work balance so you don't have to give up your life in order to achieve success. Management is relatively fair and keeps colleagues informed, however, there is limited career progression and ltitle they are doing about it. The same individuals get promoted over and over again. You have to wonder how someone is able to get promoted twice within six short months. The whole thing sounds fishy to me. However, Actelion is a good place and I would recommend you to check it out.

    Cons

    Lack of career development for managers, sales reps, etc. Unfair practices in terms of who is given opportunities, who is not. There is minimal feedback on performance granted until the end of the year (when it's too late)

    Advice to Management

    Be fair, open, and communicative. Don't play favorites, be honest - not undermining.

    Pros

    Many perks at this company. Many good people to work with. Enjoy the autonomy

    Cons

    No transparency, they do not respond well to people who rock the boat.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and respect the time people have at this company.
