Pros: free breakfast on Friday
Cons: Good benefits
If you are just out of school come here! If not, stay home! Company favors the young and does little for seasoned professionals! Managers tend to be in their 20's- 30's with no experince, so the older employees have to train the majority of students there. A lot of focus on employee training, but lack of program focus! BASIC skills are not practiced, such as program management of individual projects, timing charts or deliverables, etc. There are layers and layers of manager titles with little results from them. Since it is a Pharmaceutical Company, there are many chemists and life science majors. As a reward, they are promoted to Manager level and above. Since they are basically scientific in nature, they have No people skills and No management skills to run a department. Hence the dilemma for seasoned professionals coming to work there!
Someone should do a LEAN exercise on the MANAGEMENTorganization! If you have any large company, Fortune 100 type experience, do not come here! You will become frustrated very quickly!
On the money side, you are always chasing the rabbit! 401k money is not given to you until one year and 2 months from the time you put it in, so you have to stay the 14 months just to get your 401 monies! The same with any bonus money! Instead of getting a bonus around Christmas, like Most companies, see you later! Like in February!
If you're a friend of an employee you will have a good chance to get in! If you are a yes man , in the clique, play paint ball you will probably stay!
Foreign bodies prevail! How did the US get to this !
