    Pros

    A lot of opportunities to enhance skill sets, great networking opportunities, opportunities for poster sessions and traveling to conferences

    Cons

    With such a big company it is hard to get foot into other departments unless someone gives you a good word, and have to be very careful as a temporary because most times you won't get a permanent position

    Advice to Management

    Please give temporaries a change to excel and thrive in this environment. Please look out more for temporaries because they have the opportunity to do just as well as those who are permanent employees

    Pros

    The company was very entrepreneurial and driven to do well for the end customers/patients. Allowed flexibility and drove for excellence.

    Cons

    Corporate reorganization and closer ties with parent company, Astra Zeneca, took away the smaller company feel and independence that the company had prior to the reorganization.

    Advice to Management

    Involve the company's employees in the operations and activities of the parent company.

    Pros

    The work environment was fabulous. As an intern, I would arguably say that I learned more there in one summer than 4 years at university. The people are so innovative, practical, and hardworking, so it was a receptive environment for progress and novel ideas to create realistic, efficient solutions. The team that I worked with showed me what true teamwork and collaboration is supposed to look like, and how it can affect the outcome and timeline of product and success. The happy hour every Friday is just icing on the cake.

    Cons

    These R&D positions require long hours and abundant sources of patience, but I feel as a scientist, that should be a given.

    Advice to Management

    The management that I saw was professional, incredibly patient, and willing to impart knowledge, and even make me (as an intern) feel included in the projects and gain insight into what it would realistically look like working there.

  11. Great place to work
