Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Wilmington, DE

Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

There are many there that are trying to make it work in a difficult environment.

Cons

Same as the rest of the industry. Expiring patents with no replacements means doing more with less and the constant threat of additional lay offs. Morale for those left is at an all time low.

    Current Employee - Principal Scientist in Waltham, MA
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good benefits, large number of knowledgable scientists.
    A lot of opportunities to work in the area most satisfying and fulfilling for the individual.
    Good (and improving) publication policy.

    Cons

    Bad intranet infrastructure (often it is easier to find relevant information outside e.g. using google, than inside)
    Often data are not easily accessible and hoarded.
    Middle level management not well qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Improve intranet infrastructure, improve data access and data sharing.
    Minimize politics - maximize meritocracy. Create culture in which contribution and innovative ideas are recognized and rewarded.
