Cons

NB: Things may have changed drastically since I left

-Public company ties and reporting
    -As of end of 2012:
        -Salary increase freezes
        -Hiring freezes
        -Freezes on use of freelance for workload overflow
        -No/low bonus structure tied to other business units that may not be performing well

-Last-minute evening/weekend hours/travel (standard for pharma, but the last-minute nature of it wears down morale)

    I worked at ApotheCom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I had the pleasure of working under Beth McMahon-Wise for about six years and learned that ApotheCom is the industry leader in medical communications, period. The company has been around for a long time and is built on structure and procedure to best serve its clients.

    The team is assembled of the very best and brightest medical communications professionals and are probably the hardest working people I have met. Employees have historically been rewarded with generous benefits and fair salaries.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work hard. The industry as a whole is very demanding and in order to stay ahead, you have to provide the best customer service, no matter which function you serve in the company. Long hours and personal dedication are part of the job.
