    Pros

    Knowledgeable colleagues help make the work enviroment bearable, but the type of colleagues one interacts with varies from area to area. Some areas are intensely competitive such as in clinical, where PhDs seem to dislike MDs and work to undermine them. In ohter areas-science driven, the work atmosphere is much better and more positiivve.

    Cons

    Criteria for promotions in clinical are kept secret and are applied in unfair ways. There is a prevailing atmosphere of negative politics, competitiveness, and backstabbing in order for one's colleagues to get ahead. Managament decision-making is erratic and inconsistent, leading to a lack of confidence in leadership and the feeling of being adrift.

    Advice to Management

    Mamangement needs to get out and listen to colleagues at the lower level. The company is incredibly heirarchical and this stifles innovation and only develops syncophants. Also, 360 degree reviews are sorely needed-this is the only way to improve the leadership. When the higher cares care about making those beneath them then the company will improve.


  2. "Always pushing to do more with less"

    Pros

    Working with people who are the best in class with regard to what they do. Ability to apply yourself and work to exceed expectations by building your knowlege, skills and experience to the highest levels possible. The involutary separation and severance program is respectable.

    Cons

    No appreciation from the company for exceptional effort or extraordinary accomplishments. (Your manager/colleagues usually give you a thank you card or take you out to lunch. Upper management rarely takes notice.) You can be working in a critical/necessary position and be placed on a wave to exit the company, as well as be expected to transfer all of your knowledge and skills to other groups. And then they call you for assistance after they have let you go.

    Advice to Management

    There are two levels - managment and the workers. Management is top heavy and there are not enough people to do the work that keeps the company business going.
