    Pros

    There was a high quality of scientific research and development. Good communication with in the department and between sections that produced quality data.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Decent pay. Nice facilities, parking, work environment. Exposure to a wealth of industry experience through current employees.

    Cons

    Current employees are in all of the power positions, and not leaving anytime soon. Limited growth potential. Just got bought by Pfizer

    Promote the on site employees to give them a reason to stay. Replace the employees that left. Morale is low and in need of repair.

    Pros

    The People were what made me stay! Great teamwork and sharing of ideas. My immediate boss was terrific. Very supportive in both work and life challenges.

    Cons

    Respect of workers by senior management was not shown. Not even thank you or acknowledgement of completion of major milestones. Respect for People as one of the values was not shown in actions of management. There seemed to be more concern for shareholders and profit margins than for the real reason we are in business - making people's lives better.

    Advice to Management

    Think more about the people than the profit margin. Acknowledge hard work to meet major accomplishments. Thank you's would be appreciated. New Pfizer management should pay attention to the workers and the work load.
