    I have been working at Forest Labs

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Work Life benefits
    Some smart innovative people

    Cons

    Unrealistic 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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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
