    Pros

    - New CEO bringing a human approach to working at Ipsen - Some really bright people working within the organization working hard for the patients, no matter if they are directly working on trials or if they are in back office functions - Fantastic internal opportunities for all levels of employee - some of the best internal mobility I've seen

    Cons

    Culture, communication and respect in any international businesses can always be improved upon, Ipsen needs to do more in this area and promote the need for this internally.
