    Small company mentality. Original employees combative of changes. refuse to grow and change their business practices for the better. Lots of clans and gossiping. Poor and non-existent processes. Promotion/ advancement is on the favoritism basis instead of merit. Incompetent senior leadership. Inefficiency.

    Good job selling the company to Pfizer.

    Pros

    Great working environment with lots of room to learn and grow. I also love the culture and how quickly things get done.

    Cons

    Bought by Pfizer and 180 degree change to culture. Also, workload is non existent and is taking more than a year to integrate into the Pfizer system; hence, the worst integration ever.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together when it comes to integration since you guys done it so many times already.
