Pros

Good strategy, lots of great and competent people, many brilliant scientists, high level of dedication and commitment amongst staff, best performing Biopharmaceutical company in the world

Cons

Too much politics and power gaming, highly demanding work environment with very little respect for work life balance, not open to flexible working arrangements, diversity and inclusion is widely promoted in the company yet not followed by those leading the efforts

Advice to Management

Embrace the widespread society trend of providing flexible working arrangements. Take a broader perspective on diversity and inclusion, there is much more to it than gender balance, embrace different personality styles, approaches and ways of working. Avoid the inherited danger of only hiring people who can conform and adapt to a specific desired company style and behaviour - be open to true diversity.

City centre is not ideal location to get to due to traffic, parking etc. Can include long work hours on regular basis and timezones also impact this.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing. Looking after your people, acknowledging their success, rewarding them well, keeping patients and the best ethics and values at the top of your priority list.
