    Pros

    The people were somewhat ok. Management purchased food for staff sometimes. It's a casual environment.

    Cons

    All I can say is the pay stinks for the amount of work you do.

    I have been working at Health Science Communications full-time

    Pros

    1. Great people - most people are nice and friendly
    2. Strong culture - people help each other
    3. Performers are rewarded - promotion cycle makes sense

    Cons

    1. Work volume can be a challenge - it happens a lot, not surprising
    2. Priorities get mixed
    3. Onboarding and training still have room for improvement

    Advice to Management

    Grow young people, empower managers more, prioritize new business opportunities, focus training on select key areas, expand business with big pharma clients

    I have been working at Health Science Communications (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very professional and rewarding environment for motivated, intelligent and creative individuals. Great place to learn from talented colleagues, whether seeking to acquire basic skills or develop new ones. Very collaborative environment that provides ample opportunity for skill/thought development, and provides all the experienced needed to succeed in the industry.

    Cons

    Like many agencies, the work can be overwhelming at times, but management is deft at relieving such situations once made aware. Perhaps the biggest CON is that we are no longer closed during the Xmas to New Years week.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, and don't forget about the little guys that make the place run properly and efficiently on a day-to-day basis.

    Pros

    Many opportunities even for a new team member to be heavily involved with the client
    Enjoyable office culture
    Great entry job into industry
    Fantastic location (minutes from Grand Central)

    Cons

    Poor starting level compensation compared to other agencies in the area
    Harder-working individuals not always recognized over those who "talk the talk"
    Time-off policy offered is decent, but workload often surpasses regular work hours that is not compensated

    Advice to Management

    Compensation level should be brought to average for the industry in the NY/NJ area
