Pros

The senior management at the Northborough site was very intelligent and more than willing to share information with employees.

The human resources department and senior management provided a good work/life balance. For example, flex time was offered, and an employee assistance program was provided. There were also a number of company sponsored events (e.g. a softball team, family outings) that were good for morale.

Cons

Compensation was generally below the level of other companies in the area. In a biotech hotbed like Massachusetts, it was difficult to retain employees when salaries were for the most part not competitive.

Advice to Management

Align salaries with current trends in the industry.
