Former Employee - Sales Administrative in Austin, TX
Former Employee - Sales Administrative in Austin, TX
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great place, if you are just wanting a job. That's all it is. Keep your head down, don't try to improve things, careful not to step on anyone's toes. Expect nothing. Just. Do. Your. Job...and you will be rewarded with very good pay and standard benefits and even an opportunity for bonus. The sales force is amazing to work with.

Cons

The worst career advancement opportunities, ever.

Advice to Management

Treat everyone equally and careful not to condescend. I wasn't treated this way, but I witnessed it.

    "Stepping Stone"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Foster City, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Foster City, CA
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    You can learn quite a bit in a short period of time and use your experience as a stepping stone to develop your career elsewhere.

    Cons

    There was little room for movement around the company. Once you become well-versed in a particular research line or product category, that's where you will be for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees need to be recognized for their achievements, the constant changes need to be decreased in intensity, (i.e. less re-orgs, more stability, more foresight).
