Pros

You will work with energetic, friendly and very, very smart people. You will market products that are advancing scientific research in amazing ways. You will be empowered and supported should you wish to learn more about your trade.

Cons

Very hectic work atmosphere where working long hours are necessary, with not a lot of down time in between projects. Not a lot of opportunity for upward mobility.

Advice to Management

Provide clear paths for the smart people you hire to advance in their career. Hire more staff to support the workload so the dedicated workers you hire do not get burned out.
