No opinion of CEO

Pros

Weekly happy hours!; very collegial atmosphere; specifically, my PI was a wonderful, caring, and reasonable person to work for and I was very satisfied with the way I was treated.

Cons

It is worth noting that one's working experience at HMS may be influenced by the PI you specifically work for. I consider myself very fortunate with the PI I worked with, though I did occasionally hear from others some dissatisfaction with theirs.

Advice to Management

None.

    Pros

    The ability to do a variety of tasks as well as work with some interesting projects and exposure to new technology.

    Hard to say, people were very nice , friendly, helpful,etc. Probably the politics and the changes in senior management made people a little scared.

    Overall it was a great experience, with the mergers and downsizing that is currently occurring be as open and honest as possible
