    I worked at EMD Serono full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great Staff overall ... Some better Liars than others.... Specialized in Gas Lighting at its Finest!

    Cons

    Better than average Salary, Still under paid, If your salary gets too high or they need more staff expect to have your position eliminated without warning! Poor planning on Mgmt's part for larger projects has created a deficit on may levels. Wear impenetrable clothing so you won't ever get stabbed in the back... Favoritism, Nepotism, Biases based upon all illegal categories ... and the separation agreement specifies re;relinquishing one's Civil Rights....
