    Pros

    Enjoy working with my peers. Enjoy the challenges of analyzing the market.

    Cons

    You will never get a raise. COO promises you the moon and delivers nothing. COO pretends to treat employees with respect but talks about other employees to their peers behind their backs. COO does not know how to manage a business or employees. COO pretends to be looking out for your best interests but is only interested in her own gain and not the company or the employees. COO picks on various employees relentlessly...

    Advice to Management

    Replace the COO. If this was done the company would thrive and grow at a rapid rate. The employees morale and productivity would flourish. The COO is bringing what could be a fruitful company down.

    Pros

    Coworkers are a big pro. Office is pet friendly.

    Cons

    COO is self-serving and does not know how to run the company or manage employees. Bonuses are under COO discretion and not on merit with no type of annual review in place. No raises. COO creates an unpleasant working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Replace COO immediately and owner/CEO become present

    I worked at Pharmaforce International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most of the people employed here are great to work with 401(k) match Some work from home privileges

    Cons

    Upper level management at the PharmaForce International office in Reading, PA is very incompetent. They will be the reason you leave the company. Make sure you save every communication you have with them because they will try to sneak things under your nose without you realizing it. They will grant certain employees special privileges, but not others. They will enforce a strict policy for time off and makeup time...

    Pros

    Its a good company to work for. I have a great team and everyone id friendly and cooperative. At PFI, we make sure to mix pleasure with work. We celebrate all the festivals across cultures. Its a place where you will be recognized and noticed instantaneously for your efforts. Its a safe yet exciting environment to work in. The work-life balance is great- probably the best.

    Cons

    The company doesn't have a fancy corporate like feel to it.

    I worked at Pharmaforce International full-time

    Pros

    My team and the work was great.

    Cons

    CEO micromanages each person. If you try to stick up for yourself, they will try and get rid of you as fast as they can. Not a great way to work

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging people, give reviews to all employees including CEO, increase morale by actually having teams work together rather than pinning them against eachother.

    I have been working at Pharmaforce International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Small company. Can work from home some but many take too much advantage of that. 401k has improved. Easy parking

    Cons

    Growth is stagnant. COO never worked in industry and can't relate to clientele needs. There's a reason why the president isn't actively involved in the company. Barely survives financially each year which affects compensation growth. Most good people have moved on leaving mediocre or less people left. I don't think the company will exist 10 years from now.

    Advice to Management

    Sell out while you can

    Pros

    A place you can work long term. New benefits have been added in recent years, including 401K with employer contribution, and life insurance. Comradery has increased in the past year or so. Work-life balance is good, they understand that employees have families and obligations. Friendly co-workers. Opportunities to work remotely a few day per week after probationary period.

    Cons

    COO tends to micromanage. Raises are few and far between. Not much room for advancement, as it is a small company.
