I have been working at Pharmacyclics full-time

Pros

none comes to mind .

Cons

fake, apple polisher, politics. the fake and apple polishers get the promotions. they push, push, push you to your limits until you break. very high turnover.

Advice to Management

there is a huge gap between the executives and the rest. the executives get their way, do whatever they want, no one's watching them. while the rest of us employees are tired and pushed to hate their jobs. when they see undeserved people get promoted, they question why are they here at Pharmacyclics. you help the sick, but you don't help your own first.

    Pros

    None significant enough to make this company worth your time.

    Cons

    Executives get very special treatment, including better offices, better food ordered for their meetings. Most people are not allowed to communicate with the executives, including senior managers and associate directors. They also are not held to timelines as all other employees are.

    The executives also have their hands in the minutiae. Their approval is needed in order to allow a temporary employee to start. However, when it can take up to a month (or longer) to acquire a signature from any one of them, this makes it difficult to get new people in. Some of the executives insist on interviewing all candidates for their group, including temporary positions. At such a high level, they do not understand what is going on at the lower levels, and make budgets and other important decisions they probably shouldn't be wasting their time even thinking about.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better community feeling, instead of creating an us versus them feeling for the common folk and the executives.

    Allow managers to manage and get your hands out of the details that you aren't in the know about.

    Don't create such demanding deadlines unless you are willing to open positions and open up the budget.
