    Pros

    Fast-paced environment. Always something new. The pay is awesome, and benefits are top-notch for the industry. Great management. The ever-growing "growth pharma" model provides endless opportunities.

    Change is a challenge for everyone, but it's the only constant - embrace it. There really aren't many "cons" as long as you're doing your job and trying to make money.
