    Most stress I've ever experienced; terrible management with no clear direction.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsExciting mission, excellent people in the trenches, great perks (lunch, paid parking, decent benefits -- 2% 401(k) match, PPO reimbursement, etc).

    ConsPriorities change with the wind. No clear vision of getting something successful out the door.
    High rate of forced turnover for a variety of reasons.
    Terrible work-life balance -- the expectations are very high and it's not uncommon or irregular to see techs in the lab past midnight, days in a row.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees need better visibility on the direction of the company and they need better.
    More thoughtful planning is needed. Given the high-pace it's far too tempting to change priorities in a second...those changes have serious consequences and leads to a great deal of waste and anxiety.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Amazing how Management does not change

    Employee (Current Employee) Cambridge, MA

    ProsThere is potential for a new and exciting technology that could define a new class of therapeutics. The company has a few very scientifically strong Scientists and Research Associates that have provided the key data to make the unheard of deal that was made with Astra Zeneca.

    ConsThe management is extremely arrogant and believes everyone beneath them is replaceable. They preach behaviors are just as important as performance; however, they do not treat their employees with respect at all. The CEO runs the company like a dictatorship and shows absolutely no respect for anyone but he demands everyone respect him. The CSO is incompetent and lacks the basic knowledge of how to run proper experiments. The company is growing but so is the negativity internally and the bad reputation externally.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being so arrogant and realize that maybe the reason you were able to do that deal with AZ is because you have some very talented individuals working for you because if you don't they will continue to leave in droves....

    toxic environment

    Research Associate (Current Employee) Cambridge, MA

    Prossnacks and soda are provided

    ConsModerna has unrealistic expectations of time commitment for all employees. The workloads are outrageous and extremely high turnover puts more stress on already strung out employees who remain. Bad science practices, blame and finger pointing abound and poor management and lack of planning send reverberations throughout the entire company on a daily basis.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
