    pressure cooker

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe compensation package was thorough and competitive. When they did have to lay off employees, I think they were generous with their severance packages. There were opportunities to wear many hats and try a lot of different roles, as long as your work didn't suffer for it. There were some truly kind, knowledgeable and hardworking people there who were willing to help you learn different disciplines within the company.

    ConsIt was a total pressure cooker, and a lot of favoritism, which inevitably led infighting between the different departments. They were thick with middle management, and it led to some managers losing touch with what their employees actually accomplished on a daily basis. The gap between management and mid- to lower-level employees was rather large, and the way management was compensated comparatively was off-putting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward your employees based on their actual performance, and not on management cronyism. narrow the gap between the different work levels and encourage your different departments and teams to truly work together instead of against one another. Invest in the social areas of your workforce, and bring back things like the summer barbecues--they were good for morale of the company.

    Tragic, a potentially remarkable and game changing product in Afrezza, but ignorance and arrogance has tanked us.

    Information Technologies (Current Employee)
    Danbury, CT

    ProsGreat ground level personnel, and a truly facinating potential product. Good life work balance and pay is about market.

    ConsArrogant and ignorant Senior Management. The culture is also very "blame centric". In order for you to do well, someone has to do something bad. Very CYA attitudes and much backstabbing. Extreme paranoid silo mentality as well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the Product application team that has failed twice now to gain approval for afrezza. Their arrogance and ignorance of the FDA has cost MNKD millions of dollars, years of market and the loss of literally hundreds of mostly excellent employees.

    Mannkind's posted values do not reflect the actions taken by the company.

    Research Associate (Current Employee)
    Valencia, CA

    Prosflexible working schedule only due to the existing reporting structure. There is some amazing science with some very strong intellectual properties.

    ConsNo work life balance, and very little respect for the scientific individuals. The mentality is very "big pharma" despite the lack of resources, and lack of personnel.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is currently no incentive for individuals, and for many there is no viable professional development despite the amazing talent and potential in many.
