Used to be a great place to work.
Clinical Trial Budget Manager (Former Employee) –  Danbury, CTSeptember 19, 2017
Company seems to be mismanaged over the last few years. Major restructurings and job eliminations have resulted. Management is poor, and culture is stressful. Too much meddling from overseas.
Pros

loved the job but all product went generic and the rest were not approved by FDA
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Austin,TX and Corpus Christi, TXSeptember 17, 2017
Made 10 to 14 call per day on set schedule. Sold or advanced the sell of product. Checked sample and left samples or coupons.
Made appointments, schedule lunches, schedule dinner programs and attended 2 others monthly. Checked in on all staff. Management was competitive, enjoyed winning over other territories.
The hardest part of the job was finding the selling point that would appeal to that doctor. The enjoyable part was winning the different contest.
Pros
Extra incentives
Cons
FDA did not approve our products in time to stop the lay offs

challenging work atmosphere
Scientist (Current Employee) –  Colbert, GASeptember 7, 2017
The atmosphere at this site is not typical for all BI sites. The culture of this workplace is very tough to mold into and can be very difficult to deal with on some days. Management is lacking when it counts and overbearing when it doesn't.
Pros
free lunches occasionally
Cons
unevenly distributed work loads.

Avoid if possible
Senior Principal Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Ridgefield, CTSeptember 6, 2017
No career advancement possibilities once you reach senior technical level. All technical work is being "off shored". Fancy term for outsourced. Current IT managers are all terrible and seem to be hand picked for political reasons.

Stressful and very overated place to work
Packer/Shipper (Former Employee) –  St. Joseph, MOJuly 29, 2017
Poor management Favortism on who's hired Lots of rework Only cared about production numbers/not quality of product to consumers Expired products relabled and used. The company overall was a very disappointing experience. Many co-workers, including myself put much OT into this place. This company is all about who you know. You can be a very dedicated worker and not have one chance of getting on FT unless you know individuals.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Dramatic atmosphere, Company not ran as anticipated, Poor attitudes of employees, Upper management very poor

Wonderful culture, uncertain future and glass ceiling on advancement without PhD
Research Scientist (Current Employee) –  Ames, IAJune 29, 2017
This company is undergoing a huge merger and easily sells jobs to other companies, you are not safe here. You are not important if you don't have a PhD. While a school plan is offered, it's all on your own time and the company can, and has, dropped people's projects before.

The social atmosphere here is great. People interact and there is an open office layout in a brand new, sparkling building (Ames site only).
Pros
Employee interactions encouraged
Cons
No mobility without phd, uncertain company structure due to merger
