    I worked at Exelixis

    Pros

    Fast decision making
    Deep pipeline
    Good people

    Cons

    Lack of big pharma experience in the senior management team
    Right now compounds are more important than the right compounds
    Meeting deadlines is much more important doing good science
    Clinical development has too many people with discovery experience and no development knowledge
    Pay is much lower than industry average unless in very senior management
    Advancement for non Ph.D scientists is not very good

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refocus on doing good science
    Reward people for their knowledge and abilities, not because they blindly do what you tell them
    Put experienced people into clinical development
    Treat staff with respect, look after them as well as you look after your own self interests
