    I have been working at Alere full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    the money, flexibility in schedule; working with the most senior executive on important initiatives; making an impact in the direction healthcare will likely go.

    Cons

    professionals should be allowed to run with it a bit more; too many puffed up VPs who blather on and on; too many moves of staff that seem to be designed to provide ways to exit people; not enough feedback to people about how they are faring in the job.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your strategic thinkers; not everything can be known with certainty, the sales flash is a guess and a waste of time.
