So much potential, so much discord

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Silver Spring, MD

I have been working at United Therapeutics full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat benefits, fun culture. Knowing your work helps people.

ConsLack of consistency, growing pains, CEO makes quick decisions without consulting departments or heads that will be required to put plans in action, lack of departmental communciation

Advice to Senior ManagementPractice what you preach. Don't give the company a "Serenity" floor and then just take it away a month later on a whim -- it sends a strange message. You're not a little guy anymore it's time to start acting in a more organized (but still unconventional manner). I have no doubt this company will continue to grow and flourish, but it's pretty painful to endure for those of us who are still here.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Beautiful workplace with some unfortunate office politics

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Research Triangle Park, NC

I worked at United Therapeutics as a contractor for more than a year

ProsThe salaries can be generous as are the benefits such as health and bonus pay. On site cafeteria has four star chefs and low prices, Starbucks coffee is complimentary, excellent amenities such as fitness room pool & child care.

ConsOffice politics can get in the way of the work as cohesion at the higher levels of management is wanting. Personalities can dominate policy. Also, while the modern architecture is pretty, the glass walls offer little privacy.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork together more smoothly

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
