    Pros

    Great benefit package ample vacation time Very good 401K matching

    Cons

    Could promote from within a lot more. Stingy with salary increases. Borderline schizophrenic with marketing plans. Absolutely no R&D

    Advice to Management

    Settle down and pick a leader then let them lead for more than 3 years. put a plan in place then work the plan. Look to promote from within first. You have talented people on board. Use them.

    Pros

    Great benefits (3 weeks vacation to start) and people you work with. Products are generally market leaders.

    Cons

    Senior leadership has changed a lot in the past several years and have come from outside the organization. Culture is talked about but it's lip-service. Direction changes frequently and confidence is low as a result. Leadership has unrealistic expectations of the market for the new products and the reality of pharma sales in 2017.

    Advice to Management

    Stop getting consultant reports and talk openly with you teams. Treat leaders like leaders and be honest on the struggles. Do exit interviews and learn why people are leaving (better pay, better culture, more opportunities).
