    Pros

    Orion is a mid-sized pharma with an exciting R&D pipeline, a culture that strives for innovation and a pragmatic attitude towards getting the work done.

    Cons

    If you're not a Finn the language and culture can be challenging. The development focus is very much towards the chemistry and contemporary biology may have been a little on the back burner.

    Advice to Management

    There are some great scientists in the ranks who would love to do more!

    I worked at Orion Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Average working conditions and good salary. Latter being more important in the pharmaceuticals market. The paychecks were steady and most of the time work group was very positive and enthusiastic.

    Cons

    Middle-management lacking, great deal of nepotism all around which hampers real progress. There were almost second to none possibilities to change one's career choice inside the company, which saw many potential candidates leaving after a few years of service.

    Advice to Management

    Management should pay more heed on how to keep competent workers inside the company, instead of just "doing their job".
