    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Cheshire, CT

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

    Pros

    -Their only product does not have major side effects.
    -Yale is there, encompassing about 3 blocks within a small town. New Haven is 2 hours away from NYC and/or Boston, so the location is very rural.

    Cons

    -It is brutal to work at Alexion. Just ask around, or read the "most helpful" reviews. Below I can only speak for the commercial side of the company. For anyone interviewing, just look for yourself at how less than 10% of the people stay here longer than 2 years. This turnover includes within field sales teams, HR, market research, and marketing. Over 60+ people have left in the past 3 years - there is constant turnover and churn. Among those full-time in HQ, very few actually permanently relocate to CT (keeping their out-of-state residence for years), which should tell you a lot about HQ employee sentiment over job security or satisfaction. The company refuses to self-reflect on why this is the case. The goals are unrealistic. Burnout and bullying is common. Stay away if you care about your career, family, or sanity.

    -In an ultra-rare disease market with just a few patients per million (from public reports), there is nowhere for the stock to go but down at this point, especially as their net patient adds slow down significantly impacting a plateau for total top-line revenue.

    -You can probably tell from external recruiter calls and how many job postings are always up, that the company has major problems recruiting and retaining talent. Nobody wants to live in rural Connecticut, and the internal environment is toxic, creating constant turnover. Many people in HQ are locals who never left CT and just need a job.

    -Externally, Alexion has a poor reputation among its customers for extremely aggressive sales tactics and straddling ethical lines. Look at their KOL's. The company has alienated so many physician thought-leaders, that the physicians who speak for them are not true thought-leaders in their fields. The company also withholds medicines for patients in global markets if the government doesn't bend to its hostage-style negotiation tactics.

    -The company already has added some of the worst parts of big pharma. There are twice as many VP's as senior managers, which is ridiculous.

    -Multiple innovative deep-pocket competitors are rolling out new products for the same diseases soon, with better efficacy and fewer dosing based on public clinical trials. Already, key global and US thought leaders in PNH and aHUS are speaking for these companies, as there is broad sentiment to move away from Alexion once other options become available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -This company scars a lot of people, and you can probably tell that this post contains the brutal truth. As other reviews over several years have repeatedly also shared, this is a company most people will regret being associated with in the long run. Internal employees frequently leave at an alarming rate, and external customers and leading physicians are eager to switch to a different company once new options become available. Most people who work at HQ are locals who never left Connecticut, and the company has a major recruiting problem attracting and retaining non-local talent. Unfortunately, the company has management arrogance and bullying, which prevents it from ever conducting meaningful self-reflection for its major flaws.
