Informatics is a mess, Wake up Forest - Corruption

IT INF (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Forest Labs

ProsGood benefits
Work Life benefits
Some smart innovative people

ConsUnrealistic expectations, Infrastructure expects you to Work 24/7
Lots of Nepotism - family, past colleagues and friends get it all, esp. in Informatics
Little career growth, most senior exec roles go to outside because there is no leadership development
CIO and his executive team lack integrity

Advice to Senior ManagementThe problem is the CIO and his SVP, VPs .
Never meet with IT staff and I am in IT supervisory role.
A lot of IT jobs going offshore and the senior IT leaders CIO, VPs orchestrate this for personal purposes

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
