    I have been working at Agensys full-time (more than 5 years)


    Great location, new building and research facilities.
    Hard working and talented research associate scientists.


    Absolutely horrible leadership from the majority of the senior leaders.
    Bad behavior of certain employees is not reprimanded and is often rewarded.
    Lack of transparency in how decisions are made.
    Back-stabbing is encouraged. Two or more groups working in competition on the same assay/question is not discouraged. This does not support a collaborative environment.
    Poor appreciation of being scientifically literate. Most senior leaders don't read the top journals in their field and lack the basic skills as a scientist to design well controlled studies.
    The problems are not with Sef Kurstjens, or with Astellas but with the majority of the senior staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the politics and lack of transparency and focus of creating a collaborative, productive environment where poor behavior and performance are not rewarded. Improve your scientific IQ by reading the scientific literature in your areas of expertise and encourage people to propose new ideas. Support these ideas and most importantly, lead by example.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
