One of the top companies in the industry
Human Resources Manager (Former Employee) –  Plainsboro, NJOctober 24, 2013
Hard work, long hours, can be rewarding. Every day is different. Work is diversified. Lots of politics which you must be able to handle if you are to succeed. Most of my co-workers were great. The best part of the job was the ability to work independently and 'make a difference'.

not alot of advancement opportunities.
