    Pros

    They give a lot of holidays

    Cons

    no matching 401k but they have money to give free lunches every week and all kinds of unnecessary company events they're too intent on being like alza instead of being durect competition between each product team leads to a whole lot of not sharing information management is too intent on hiring people that they used to work with, instead of hiring competent people, ie if you worked at alza or syntex you can get a job easily even if you're incompetent management's philosophy is ridiculously outdated, they don't think we need decent computers to do our work (by decent i mean at least a pentium 4, i had a pentium 3 for christ sakes), no computer documentation was done until a few months before their first NDA filing because they believed the FDA doesn't need to see any computer data, data has been falsified many times and led to some terminations but some people are still employed What worked for Alza in the 70s-80s won't worked today, as shown by Alza's demise

    Pros

    There are quite a few techniques to be learned here as a young scientist. The work is varied and novel.

    Cons

    I have been kept as an hourly employee (without benefits) for a very long time, despite very positive feedback from immediate supervisors and middle management. Additionally, I have very little idea about what is going on in the company as a whole because of my temporary status.
