It is a good company, they're still growing a lot so lots to fix up. Not sure what they have going on in the security space however.

I spent about a year on a project there. Very good company if you are mid-senior level or higher. They pay well and have above-average benefits, and all employees get stock options. They also have really great healthy lifestyle Initiatives. Subsided healthy lunch options, etc.

On the negative side, they utilize TONS of contractors to keep costs low, even for core business functions. They are a small player in the Pharma space, so they are a likely target for acquisition by one of the mega companies (Phizer, Shire, etc.). Despite being small, they have a very large global footprint, so a lot of operations run very lean teams.

All-in-all, though, it's a good company, and they are growing. If you don't mind living in North Jersey, it's a good place to be.
