Executive Specialty Representative (Former Employee) –  DC MetroJuly 11, 2018
Great company to work for. Everyone is respectful of each other and and their work/department. Only thing, being very large for a biotech, it began to shape into somewhat similar to a big pharma.
Pros

Now functions more like a big pharma

Culture leaves a lot to be desired
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  West Carrollton City, OHJuly 8, 2018
Good for experience and bank account. High turnover rate for a reason. Consider other offers for longevity. Management is a mess, constant turnover, does provide buy/bill training, and injectable experience.

Clinical SAS Programmer (Former Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAJune 20, 2018
It's an ok place to work. Hires mainly contractors, so difficult to get permanent. Contractors do most of the jobs. Lots of opportunity to learn new skills and tools. Fellow contractors are helpful. Not much help from permanent employees.
