Regulatory Affairs Associate Reviews

What is it like working as a Regulatory Affairs Associate?
Regulatory Affairs Associate in Boston:
"Great Rewarding Work."
Pros: My field is relatively new; I work in observational research, which means there is little regulation in the US, and the regulations in Europe require a great deal of interpretation. I like that my job requires a great deal of critical thinking, and the days are constantly changing.
Cons: Because the field is so new, and my division is growing so fast, I find myself completing a lot of tasks that are out of scope, including operations work that is not billed to our clients.
