      Pacira Is Not For Everyone!

      Pros

      Pacira is not for everyone and that's not a bad thing! If you are smart, driven, and looking for a place to learn and make an impact, Pacira might be the place for you. I've been at Pacira for almost 5 years and have worked with and learned from some of the sharpest minds in the industry. I am challenged every day and look forward to coming in every morning.

      Cons

      Pacira is still a young and growing company. Not every SOP and policy is in place as you may be used to, but that's just opportunity for the right people.

      If you like fire drills, then this is the place for you. Management tends to change their minds very frequently.

      Pros

      Fantastic Product and Message. Most employees are great to work with and are genuinely nice.

      Cons

      Pay does not match other pharma companies, especially with the number of responsibilities each employee has. After this last year, there is still not a flexible schedule for WFH. Promotions and politics go hand-in-hand.
