Pros

Flexible work arrangements
Very good people
Biotech industry with a focus on Technology
Diverse set of clients within the industry

Cons

Project manager job is a complete grind
The work amounts to customer service a 2nd tier technical support
Actual project management is a relatively small part of the job

Advice to Management

Stop with the band aids and look at organizational and process change. This is no longer a small company. The turnover here is way to high for a company in a good industry, that pays competitive thought not great salaries. The workload is uneven and most of the time unbearable, largely do to the poor distribution of work, the burdensome SOPs and the lack of ability to resource work effectively.
