    Pros

    Benefits are awesome. Salary is above average. Very challenging and fast paced so keeps you excited 100% of the time. Medivation provides a very generous PTO and paid holidays plus we get the week and half almost when company shuts down for Xmas and New Years. The company does a lot of employees, lots of parties, catered lunches, etc. They also provide an unlimited supply of snacks (too many to list) and beverages of all kinds. David...awesome CEO. We are also voted one of the top places to work two years in a row now.

    Cons

    The company is going through a massive growth so lots of growing pains. There is a lot of politics. CEO promotes no silos but they exist. Upper level management is sometimes very disconnected from the reality of things. HR has taken away some nice benefits otherwise it would be an even better place to work. The benefits package is shrinking as we continue to grow. We went from a company with little to no turnover to people getting fired all the time. I suppose this is why Medivation is a great place to work...your incompetence stands out very quickly amongst high level performers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way to listen to the lower level folks...they do the work and have a much better idea of the situation versus those in upper management. Not all Directors carry their weight. Take another look at the benefits package.

    Best company I ever worked for. Nobody EVER quits! They do get fired, as I found out. Everybody loves CEO.

    I worked at Medivation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extremely generous in every way, life saving mission, many brilliant, thoughtful people, great location, millions in bank - no money problems, incredible benefits, good future potential, exciting products.

    Cons

    The crazy rate of firing seems to be a few whackos sprinkled throughout management, who otherwise are fine people to work with. I know that my boss and both levels above are no longer there, so maybe it's better now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. I wish I was still there. Maybe something as serious as firing people should be reviewed by someone who doesn't take it so lightly, but honestly, I know you do have more important things to think about.

    I have been working at Medivation full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This is a great, growing company with an innovative spirit and minimal corporate politics. They are in a fantastic location, have great benefits and a very smart, savvy leadership team.

    Cons

    There are some growing pains, and having a comarketing partner always has it's challenges. Lots of work, but they are expanding and growing their staff to accomodate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, continue to be flexible and innovative and give people opportunities, that will continue to attract top talent!

    Pros

    dynamic group of hard working and experienced coworkers who legitimately care about saving lives and making a difference

    Cons

    There isn't a difference between sick and vacation time - meaning you have to use your vacation PTO time to be sick. As a result everyone comes to work sick and gets each other sick!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! Please don't sell the company!
