    Pros

    Small start up flexible and with many future opportunities. Many ways to advance and much exposure to all areas of the company.

    Cons

    Doesn't have the depth of training or organization to provide many benefits other than salary, small and high visability. Must work well with all the other employees

    Advice to Management

    Focus on more team building sessions. Allow for international travel to go to conventions and learn more about the industry and to develop your own networks.

    I worked at Amgen full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, generous PTO, high safety culture to ensure staff practices safe behaviors.

    Cons

    Woburn used to be an enjoyable place to work before new management rolled in. Overworked & underpaid, management likes brown-nosers and doesn't credit the true hard-working individuals. Seems like the values are going out the window and not trying to retain the great talent on site, as people are dropping like flies. Need to hold people accountable for their mistakes. Senior Management pretends to care about the little people.

    Advice to Management

    A little too late for any advice.

    Look at the attrition rate ever since the new IT LT and address cultural and behavioral issues with leaders.
    Survey the organization globally
