    I have been working at IPSEN full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are no ceilings, not literally but opporrtunity for involvment and cross training are all open. All hands on deck mentality. Create your vision for yourself and work towards it, nobody will try to stop you.

    Cons

    With the opportunity and speed of development this environment will only suit a hard working and results orientated mentality. The more you do the more you are given, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy work life balance with so much opportunity.
