    A good start and in a promising, growing phamaceutical company. A place rich of resources and talented people.

    Secure, fun and exciting atmosphere but not perfect...

    Research Associate III (Current Employee) Tarrytown, NY (US)

    ProsWith the industry still contracting (ie Merck's recent layoffs) it is comforting to have peace of mind that we should be secure for the next few years with our recent success. Fun environment (lots of parties), great benefits (stock options are a huge plus even for those of us in lower positions), above average 401K and insurance, tuition reimbursement even increased. With recent success, salary is catching up to industry norms, I started ~4 years ago and felt fairly underpaid at the time, especially considering the cost of living, but since then the compensation has improved where I no longer consider it a con and it was a huge one to start.

    ConsUnclear direction for growth/advancement. RA's (non-Phds) generally have a rather define glass ceiling (RA V). In my group, not a lot of distinction between the levels (RA II vs RA V). Promotions are difficult to obtain. Position can be monotonous and unchallenging after time again due to lack of growth and increased roles/responsibilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more opportunities for growth, rather then bringing in outside applicants could a role be filled internally?

    ProsEmphasis on good science
    Good home/work balance
    Lots of encouragement by senior management
    Great benefits

    ConsPromotions are dependent on time worked rather than purely merit

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromotions of individuals based on time worked rather than merit is a bit bad for morale

    Great Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe culture and atmosphere is very positive and motivating. There are great opportunities to advance your career.

    ConsOnly one cafeteria. The area tends to flood and make commuting difficult at times.

    The company is still small enough that your responsibilities have a tangible impact in the company's success.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsValue research and innovation. Plenty of vacation. Flexible hours. Quite a bit of celebrating. Plenty of opportunities for learning and development.

    ConsHours can be long. Too many high priority projects. Difficult to take vacation.

    This is a great company that focuses on actually science instead of politics

    Research Associate II (Current Employee) Tarrytown, NY (US)

    ProsThis is a unique pharma that encourages room for career and personal growth.

    ConsAlthough it is a fairly new pharma, there are some kinks that need to be worked out, but with time it will smooth out.

    The best place I've worked yet!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Rensselaer, NY (US)

    ProsYoung, energetic atmosphere. They truly believe if that treat the workers well, they'll do a great job. Open to suggestions and innovation; truly an organization that will continue to improve as it ages.

    ConsIt is a bio-pharma company; you work with some hazardous chemicals. The company provides all the safe-guards they can, but ultimately it is the responsibility of the worker to be careful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing!
