    Former Employee - Manager
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - very much the industry standard and fairly insulated in pharma
    - smart, experienced people (although fewer than a few years ago)
    - fairly flexible working arrangements; moving to open office plan
    - new management seems committed to grow and change old way of doing things

    Cons

    - new management doesn't seem to have vision to change old way of doing things other than MBA buzzwords and only real differences have been budget cuts (including things like coffee cups and meals while traveling)
    - internal structure has led to little visibility to projects/development opportunities across departments
    - lots of red tape and layers of management that attend meetings but don't make any decisions or have any tangible responsibilites

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your own way, you have the most complete data and just bought a company that will help you fill in the gaps (SDI). Understand your customers, they are looking for help and want to pay you handsomely for your services - invest in 21st century systems and eliminate the destructive siloed competition for new business. Cutting to the bone by eliminating the worker-bees and delaying system improvements may help the bottom line in the short term but won't be a fix long term.
