Project Manager; Resourcing (Current Employee) –  Chertsey27 October 2017
Good company and culture - has learnt from its errors and is moving on in a much more positive vein. There is a lot of transformation happening so the future for contracts and interim is limited.
If given the opportunity to return I would

Data Centre Migration Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Chertsey, Surrey8 June 2017
A very comfortable working environment and a nice company to work for. The company does however manage the IT system in line with FDA pharmaceutical requirements for drug production. This is not a problem if you are aware of it but will severely impact planned project time lines if you are not.

Great place to work. Superb team. Made a real difference through establishing training department and contributed to overall company success year on year. As a sales director was highly successful and my team outstripped the rest in every sales respect. All top territory performances in my team. Also developed and implemented strategy for patent loss of key product resulting in keeping 60% sales. Also implemented new recruitment process and targeting system. Set up co-promotion with CSO - highly successful for 3+ years.

Credit, Customer Service & Acct Payable Manager (Current Employee) –  Chertsey, ENG27 November 2013
There are many positives to working in the Pharma industry, to see the benefit to human life that drugs can make is incredible, I learned so much from the product range we manufactured and the life changes this gave to patients.
Internally it was always a struggle, much expectation was placed on an employee to do more and more outside the job spec you were employed for, diversity is one thing but lack of recognition is another.

Most enjoyable aspect was autonomy of what I did in any given day.
Hardest part of the job was trying to show why your work is better than another's because of the need to facilitate a persons desire for information that was not used in the correct way, too many times a rash decision is made to pacify a threat, but the long term solution was not considered and rash decisions meant the long term goal was jeopardised.
Pros
Good salary and benefits
Cons
lack of role alignment
