    Pros

    Nice people for the most part and beautiful office. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Epitome of icky corporate culture at its worst. Fake, back-stabbing, leadership that act like sheep. Speak out against the grain and you risk being reprimanded or pushed out. The emphasis on transparency is complete and utter BS- people tiptoe around the truth. Unbelievably difficult to get information you need to get the job done at such an “innovative” organization. People are not open to change or doing things differently- everything is for optics. I have never worked with a more incompetent HR team, either. Totally siloed organization in a poor strategic position.

    Pros

    Great pay, good benefits Lots of job openings due to qualified people leaving for better opportunities.

    Cons

    Inept managers and even more inept senior leaders. Keep promoting people based on politics and loyalty and it will be GSK 2009 all over again. Seems like most major decisions are made by throwing a dart at a dartboard - all done without input from the actual people that have to carry out the inane marching orders. The latest sales initiative with the creative moniker, COCO, is a disaster and encourages reps to act in a manner that is different when their managers are not around. Don't expect recognition or promotion if you're not a female and/or minority. Restructuring every 18 to 24 months. Don't expect to keep your same territory or manager.
