Here’s what current and former employees have to say:
“Pros: Very good company culture; people are super helpful and make efforts for your growth; a chance to work with very talented people in the industry; have a lot of opportunities to explore; the benefits are also good, and the company is pretty stable, hence more scope for research and development. Cons: Takes a long time to get the approval for anything and lots of red tape.” – Current employee
“Pros: I don’t see this company going out of business anytime soon — having a Mission around helping people live longer, healthier lives hits home, and we’re good at pulling together; brilliant people work here; if you like a challenge, this is a good place to be; employee groups are a great way to get connected across the company and have fun; benefits are great; pay is usually good; lots of ways to do volunteer work and improve your skills if you know where to look. Cons: Restructuring can come as a shock, always be prepared and listen to what’s going on around the company; still trying to get past silos and improve inter-department communications; finding the group/info you need can be hard when you don’t know the right people; negotiate a better salary for yourself right away, or be prepared to work two levels above your own, so HR will approve a promotion.” – Current employee
“Pros: Good pay; great benefits and willingness to be flexible with remote work. Cons: Layoffs all the time; little communication between working departments, and executive team is clueless at times and never asked other departments to be a part of meetings.” – Former employee
