    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The pay is good and the area is affordable.

    Cons

    Benefits are generally okay or sub-par, but there isn't much room to increase in compensation. Any pay benefits are based on metrics that don't seem attainable. Appreciation of employees is not as great as other companies I have worked for. Often will find promotions given to middle management or upper management rather than scientists or below.

    Pros

    Good working environment, room tolerance and grow professionally. Many opportunities in a number of fields that fall under the pharma umbrella.

    Cons

    Long hours, much of the leadership is new to pharma so they are still learning. Some of the more experienced leadership isn't always listened to. Lots of room for growth and improvement at the bloomington location,but they are making the right moves to get this location on track and to continue improving.
