    Pros

    Strong Pipeline -- received two FDA approvals in less than 1 year for Perjeta and Kadcyla. Company takes the time to celebrate success.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to be done. A local news broadcast advertised hiring 600 positions to bridge that gap.

    Advice to Management

    Keep celebrating successes.
