Pros

Interesting drugs and antibodies to work on, some of which gain FDA approval.

Cons

The work pace is grueling.
No advancement after nearly 5 years. Demotions are more common than promotions.
Management does not care about growing their workers, just uses them up and spits them out.
Employees are nice, but burned out from the pace.
Moral is, on the whole, abysmal.
Tattling is common between a select few workers and management, making for a environment where trust is not present.

Advice to Management

Offer some incentive to your workers so that the best ones stay instead of having to leave.

    Pros

    Worldwide operations offer many opportunities.

    Cons

    Some senior management worked their way up through the ranks but received little management training other than reporting. It can seem like a large mom and pop company where decisions are made based on personal relationships not performance.

    Pros

    Growth in a down economy.

    Cons

    No impromptu days off and certainly not at the end of the month when billing is at hand.
