80% of the CEO
I worked at InterMune
Pros – great people, fair benefits and compensation, terrific employee events and recognition
Cons – transitional time, has become top down management, hard to have a good idea of the future of the company
Advice to Senior Management – secrecy breeds fear and bad morale
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at InterMune as a contractor for less than a year
Pros – Strong mission: launching (europe/canada) or late-stage trials (US) for first product for a rare disease.
Fast-paced: decisions are made fast and implemented fast
Internal communications are strong: clear vision, objectives and goals are well-communicated internally
Quirky high-performers are tolerated (encouraged?)
Cons – Hierarchical: too much respect for management layers, eg you can't speak to your boss' boss, without prior permission (and often boss' boss won't speak with you, unless your boss is present)
Tendency to utilize over-qualified external consultants/contractors so as to ensure quality (although these externals are over-paid, bored, and take the know-how away with them)
Advice to Senior Management – With such fast growth, take care to preserve the culture, the leanness and the fast decision-making as InterMune transitions to the next level
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
