Current Employee - Associate Director in Waltham, MA
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Terrific colleagues who are very highly motivated and intelligent. Place has a buzz like a small company and the resources of a large pharmaceutical company. Good work life balance and assistance with childcare. Amazing facilities, labs, office space and cafeteria.

Cons

Senior management fails to recognize strong scientific contributions - favors project managers. Many poor decisions from senior management. Aggressive personalities are recognized and rewarded rather than those who make the most meaningful contributions.

Advice to Management

Recognize the scientists and not just those interested in climbing the career ladder

    Pros

    Year-round flex-time
    Telecommuting from home once/week

    Cons

    Major layoffs ongoing for the foreseeable future

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about the planned layoffs. Don't keep people in limbo for such extended periods - it drives people away from the company.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits and salary are the best part of the package.

    Cons

    The managers can make or break your job. If they don't like you it doesn't matter how good your are and how well your territory is doing, you are still going to be treated like dirt.

    Advice to Management

    You need to take a look at the representatives abilities and relationships in the field. Some reps know how to play the management game and they are the ones that are often perceived as being the super reps while the reps who are honestly out doing their job like they are suppose to are the ones that end up getting laid off in the end. The managers are the ones that got fooled in the end.
