Great Colleagues but Frustrating Management
Senior Specialist (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 13, 2018
Working at WuXi AppTec in Philadelphia is a great company for those just starting out in the life science industry. There are always new and exciting projects occurring, and overall the people are great to work with. There are employee recognition awards and events, as well as additional perks.
However, the most frustrating aspect about working at WuXi is that internal people are passed over for promotions for outside candidates. The ones that are promoted at WuXi are so due to seniority and not based off of accomplishment.
The company takes a reactionary stance to most challenges, versus being proactive and anticipating problems/issues. This does mean that it is hardly ever boring at WuXi, but it can be frustrating when you go through a highly stressful situation with the same individuals repeatedly.
