    I have been working at Prime Therapeutics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Pretty Fair salary, great PTO( 5 weeks!), benefit, and annual bonus.
    - Flexible hours, just expect you to do your work well and timely. Core hours are 9-4, but they can extend depending on your manager and workloads 8-9 hours daily.
    - Fair travel policy, you book and manage everything yourself just needing approval from your manager. 75/day food allowance, and 175 on a hotel/day for most areas.

    Cons

    - Fast paced and unorganized at times work environment, but is improving with time.
    - Travel up to 50% for my role, but if your young and without kids it’s perfect to see the county.

    Advice to Management

    Not too much to complain about. They have improved significantly since I began at addressing issues and providing opportunity to grow.

    Pros

    Company has good people and intentions. It's a nice place if the industry of Pharmacy and Healthcare Benefits is interesting to you.

    Cons

    The actual work itself can be repetitive and mind numbing.

    Advice to Management

    Notice employees who provide quality work (not just quantity).

    Pros

    Some great individual contributors and managers who sincerely try to do quality work and treat people well. 401k and other benefits are decent even if not what they once were. New Headquarters in Eagan (oddly designed but pretty to look at) replacing outdated buildings. Also, when done correctly it can be rewarding to work on projects for a healthcare company that take privacy and patient care seriously.

    Cons

    There is little to no leadership at Prime. People in positions of power are either constantly changing (in my time and off the top of my head: 2 CEOs, 3 CIOs, 3 CFOs and another coming, and we reported to 4 different VPS at one point or another) or will run screaming in the other direction of the need to make a decision. Processes are very convoluted which kills a sense of "ownership" and technology is outdated. HR is also a black hole from which no light or matter of substance escapes. Yearly "raises" sometimes fall below the rate of inflation so get all the money you can upfront and don't expect any help with career development.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long, hard, look at what kind of company it is that you want to be because things are in chaos. You can't keep churning people at the rate you are and expect to have success.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, ability to work from hom

    Cons

    Company is in the middle of a transformation from a project to product model. But doesn’t have a published roadmap. Company lost $50 M last year and eliminated a couple hundred jobs in March 2019. If you’re an IT or PM professional, you might want to look elsewhere until thing settle down. Company has an acting CEO and is on its 2nd acting CFO in less than a year.
