    The Benefits and pay are very strong. And have improved recently. The infrastructure is sound and poised for a rebirth of the company.

    Leadership Culture is mixed. Because performance is waning and pipeline is not materializing at a sufficiently profitable level, people are being squeezed, even when they have little control over the expected outcome

    Advice to Management

    Consider have random 360's done on leadership above the manager level

    Pros

    Talented staff, Summer Hours
    Great way to learn multiple aspects of the business and hone skills to take elsewhere

    Cons

    Progressive Policies on Paper only
    Staid thinking
    No true accountability
    Money wasted, not used in the best ways possible

    Advice to Management

    Engage your employees in open dialogue and really listen to what they say. Having a work from home/compressed workweek policy that your barely allowed to use is not progressive. You're losing talented people you don't have to.

    Pros

    No experience needed to apply for first time in Pharma. small manageable territories for the most part. pay increase was nice and the incentive package is improving.

    Lay off's every year of employment and management is not very open with the direction of the company. unsuccessful launches for products in multiple years has caused a downsize every year.
