    Pros

    All employees respect their coworkers and have honest concerns to bring positive solutions to the customer. Good atmosphere and many perks on site to make work life balance easy.

    Cons

    Management is not honest or sincere, and tends to be perspective driven instead of using facts. Company is adjusting to the external forces of the pharmaceutical industry and as such had been in a consistent reduction mode for years. Limitations on career options.
