      Good As Long As You Like To Brown Nose To Move Up

      Jun 1, 2021 - Management in Basking Ridge, NJ

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      good benefits, 401K avg. Nice people across all sectors to work with. Good Work Family balance and growing. The company made very good Covid accommodations for employees.

      Cons

      Direct manager didn't know how to face confrontation or staffing issues. He would rather go on vacation then deal with the issues at hand. Company stock is one of the worst I have experienced. Doesn't grow much so make sure you are saving money in other investments. If you want to move up in the company, it's okay to throw your co-workers under the bus and brown nose to upper management. If you can be successful at that, you will advance quickly.

      Pros

      Great people, super exciting oncology pipeline.

      Promotions are hard to come by and even harder to come by for women. No women in upper level management positions - it's embarrassing for 2021.
