I have been working at PHT Corporation full-time

Pros

Competent and pleasant people to work with.
Most employees are true believers in what the company does, its mission, its ideals (though none will have much good to say about the state of the product).
Company is unquestionably competent in its field; customers keep coming back for more.
New generation of products under development.
My sense is that some of the ills and baggage of the company are on the mend, and things are looking up.

Cons

Working 50 hours minimum per week is a stated expectation.
ISO9000 + highly regulated industry creates constraints and slows down progress.
No telecommuting policy; generally not allowed.
Bad dynamics/distrust between some organizations (for no reason that I can see; perhaps historical baggage).
Lots of inefficiencies; redundant, tedious, manual processes to make product and run business (but improving).

    I have been working at PHT Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    PHT is the market leader in a small but growing segment supporting clinical studies. The work done by the staff is designed to help pharmaceutical companies get their drugs tested and, if successful, approved. This is interesting and valuable work.

    Cons

    Regardless of the many hours and extended effort put in by the staff, upper management sees no value in their contributions. Already overloaded team members are given additional work and are then blamed by senior management when the can't keep up with their workload. For senior team members there are no opportunities for advancement and the only way to be promoted without changing departments is to get another job offer and then take advantage of the counter proposal offered by management to keep you from leaving.

    Advice to Management

    This company does good work. Help the staff by truly improving process and forget about the band aids for a quick fix.

    In addition to better leadership, PHT sorely needs a senior leader whose sole focus is operations. Having a COO or VP of Operations would allow that person to improve the infrastructure that touches so many other departments and impacts the company's ability to meet client deadlines and delight customers.
