    I worked at BioCentury Publications full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is very focused and knowledgeable about biotechnology and publication making it a very stimulating work environment.

    Cons

    Too much work is put on to the writers. There are many skilled editors and upper level management available to help but the actual writing to be done by each person is too much.

    Advice to Management

    They just need to make sure that the writing positions are adequately staffed and that everyone is doing their part.
