    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Whitehouse Station, NJ (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Whitehouse Station, NJ (US)

    Pros

    Smart, capable colleagues; excellent work-life benefits; important mission; access to developmental resources; Whitehouse Station facility is gorgeous. Workforce reductions were done thoughtfully.

    Cons

    Crazy workload; don't have a great deal of respect for current HR leadership. Total compensation is much less competitive than it was in the past, though executive pay remains high and is not in line with company performance.

    Pros

    - opportunities to work with some very bright and motivated people
    - scientific excellence and solid products
    - lots of resources provided you are on a high-priority project

    Cons

    - still some "dead wood" hanging around and not pulling weight; lives in the glory days
    - very process-oriented which can get in the way of rapid decision-making and innovation
    - career development often times capricious
