Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The benefits and relocation packages are great, until you file your taxes, be very careful with that. All kinds of little psychological tests to manipulate through the process, be aware or be gone.

Cons

There is a very inbred mentality going all the way back to Eli himself. Self sacrifice is a given, what less would a Civil War hero demand. However, I sometimes wondered whose side he was on.

Advice to Management

Get the science back into this company or it will fail in our lifetimes. It's just so completely number and business oriented now - but you need a certain critical mass of 1. Science and 2. Honesty

    Former Employee - Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative in Modesto, CA
    Former Employee - Pharmaceuticals Sales Representative in Modesto, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    the company is very good with allowing vacation/personal days, well recognized employer in a respectable industry, company car, free lunch

    Cons

    the immediate manager had no work/life balance and therefore didn't allow the employees to have it either. sales numbers lie and that's what you're being compensated on. promotions are biased.

    Advice to Management

    management needs more communication with employees, the company's IT systems are outdated, they say they care but they really don't,
