    Pros

    Great flexibility, good work life, pay and benefits good. Nice focus on patients. Campus organized and structured. Big focus lately on career growth and engagement.

    Cons

    Lots of reorganizations. Unclear CEO direction. Pipeline needs some structure. A lot banking on a few compounds. Hoping CEO and team can provide vision soon.

    Focus on pipeline. Time for an acquisition.

    Great benefits, solid pay, excellent people.

    Commute, work was sometimes repetitive or boring.
