It seems great when you just join in. You will find everything is different from, or opposite to what they said after three month. Whether you could do a good job is the least important thing. They care whether you belong to their sect. If not, you will soon be the target.
There are a few bullies from hybridoma group trying to control everything, trying to show they know everything and they can do everything. No real science, people like jumping around. I am surprised how they got the Merck deal.
During meeting, you will find that one person actually generated the data, and 15 leaders, related or unrelated will question you.
There are nice people. There are people work hard and there are smart folks. But normally, they are out of the circle. Totally speaking, the entire environment is a big mess, no help for your career.
