    I have been working at MedImmune full-time

    Pros

    stable dependable work, opportunity to help others, opportunity to learn a lot about the biotech business.

    Cons

    fairness matters more than talent, extreme limitations on promotions and focus on fairness means that high performers are forced to "wait their turn" or look other places for career advancement. Even with 10-20% turnover, thies means promotions once every 7-8 years.

    Advice to Management

    If you wait too long to address this, you will watch all you best talent move to other opportunities. HR's insistence that promotions don't matter to people is obviously insane and will continue to result in >15% turnover year over year.
