    Questionable management maturity in a small shop

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDecent holiday parties. Small pharma mentality.

    ConsPeople who are offensive or abusive should not be tolerated in any way. Alkermes rewards bad management behavior, does nothing to rid itself of the people who are self-serving and dictatorial, and promotes an uncaring disrespectful atmosphere toward its employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to the lowest levels of the organization. They often go unheard, and fear management retaliation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good science but not a great place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Waltham, MA

    ProsInteresting pipeline and technology. Employees are generally friendly and collaborative. Casual work environment.

    ConsTop-down communication is poor. You're either liked and promoted or dis-liked and included in the yearly layoff. Little spent on professional growth and training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease communication and exchange of information at all levels.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
