fun place to work and learn about different disease states
Territory Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVMarch 6, 2017
Learning about different disease states was interesting. After a while the job became redundant. Affecting bonuses became unmeasurable. If your drug does not have a clear advantage over the competition, you become a commodity.

Fast paced but gives you purpose
Operational Excellence Intern (Former Employee) –  Manatí, PRFebruary 14, 2017
The job itself might be stressful but it's foundation and culture is solid. You feel a sense of purpose going to work everyday which made it easy to wake up in the morning to work. Meetings are to discuss important issues and don't waste time on chit chat. I love the direct communication with upper management and the acceptance of employees to change and improvement.
Pros
CAFETERIA, PACE, CULTURE
Cons

Global Procurement Finance Co-op (Former Employee) –  Plainsboro, NJJanuary 25, 2017
I was in Procurement Finance. Everyone is really welling to teach. It is a great place to have the first real world experience. It is slow pace, so it might be for everyone. It is hard to have enough work to do, I guess it is probably because I was only an intern.

Jr Scientist (Current Employee) –  Manatí, PRJanuary 20, 2017
The typical day at work is very complicated because the people have multiple tasks. When your work depend the other person the task will be more extensive. But this culture help me to learn to give the better of me. Otherwise, learn to work under pressure, and realized the work without errors. The hardest part of the job is the beginning when you starts to know the company and all regulation that has. The most enjoyable part of the job is when I complete a challenging work.
Pros
Flex Time
Cons
I am subcontractor employee.

Was a great company
Assistant Research Scientist (Current Employee) –  Wallingford, CTJanuary 17, 2017
Used to be a great company filled with promising scientists and a thriving culture. Our new CEO and his company transformation are doing everything possible to gut this company so that is it a shell of its former self. Upper-management has no leadership, and the high-level decisions being made here make absolutely no sense unless they are planning to sell the place.

You can still find a groups performing great science, but if you join this company, don't plan on getting too cozy.
Pros
Great pay and benefits
Cons
Horrible upper-management decision making.
