- 3.0Jan 16, 2022Non-clinicalCurrent Employee, more than 3 yearsWhite Oak, MD
Everyone works as hard as they can to support the mission of improving public health by increasing the safety of medications and medical devices. People are great team players. Everyone's voice is important and heard. There are fantastic resources, such as a library, seminars and journal clubs, and mentors.
You work as hard as you can. People frequently 'abandon ship' with little warning so you are left short-staffed since it takes at least 9-12 months to replace anyone. There is little room for career advancement because you have to be on the job a non-specific amount of time in order to learn all the nuances of the job. So working longer and harder doesn't get you faster advancement or increased pay.1

Extremely rewarding to be a public servant, make impactful decisions. Surrounded by dedicated and experienced scientists.
Pay is stagnant and low compared to industry for high qualified PhDs.
