    Pros

    Large Global company
    Very interesting pipeline, particularly with regard to Oncology Translational Medicine
    Very intelligent and competent scientific & clinical group
    Team members (on studies I worked) were professional and motivated to do their best

    Cons

    For Oncology Data Management -
    lack of DM metrics and thereby accountability. This leads to a culture of who can point the finger the fastest opposed to accepting responsibility for errors and creating processes or improvements to prevent them in the future.
    Accepted DM culture of doing least amount of work for most amount of money, i.e. abundant and blatant internet surfing and Facebooking while at work.
    Completely outsourced model (starting to come back in-house) and high on-site contractor use. This is not necessarily a con if appropriate metrics are in place, but since not, fosters continuous blame to CROs and contractors opposed to process correction and thereby negating vendor relationships as well as producing a high turn-over rate of contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Reward productivity, fire those who want to surf the internet all day.
    Create / Implement department metrics to assess productivity of individuals. This will also reshape blame culture to one of accountability.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits and a good pipeline. They have a work from home policy and flex-time. Free gym and the on-site health care is great.

    Cons

    No job growth, limited career development. Promises of promotions, and then they don't go through when the time comes. Lack of training or definitive policies. Each team does the same task different ways. Poor management.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your people. Communicate with them- ask them what they need to make their job better. Appreciate and respect your people and reward them for a job well-done!
