Pros

Branded and generic drugs. Growing Company. Younger workforce mixed with some veterans. There is exlusivity now for Colchicine which should increase profits dramatically for that entire year.

Cons

Upper Management is extremely conservative and don't like to reward the efforts of those who work the hardest. They have all these plans and budgets in place with increasing profits, yet they want to continue hiring temporary workers so they don't have to pay them unemployment and insurance. Basically, what is the incentive to work for them other than a paycheck?

Advice to Management

Reward your employees, when they get job performance reviews of 5 all the way across the board, and then you turn around and deny their Manager's bid to make them full time, why work for a company who doesn't treat you fairly? Self-Centered attitudes will run this company into the ground. When value is added to your team, reward it, don't ignore it.

    I worked at United Research Laboratories (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good professional environment, quality based, care for employees, competitive pay, had good product pipeline and ARD department

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons except it is small to mid size company where everyone knows every one and into each other business so if you are mid my own business personality then you may need little adjustment

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good pace

    Pros

    It's in Philadelphia and not the suburbs so the commute from the city is reasonable.

    Cons

    Low pay, most office spaces have no window at all, management can't put one foot in front of the other.

    Advice to Management

    I recommend getting an operational HR department.
