    I worked at Ambrx


    It's a great technology with huge amounts of potential. Company location is awesome, and the benefits are pretty good given the size of the company. Ambrx has attracted attention from the big pharma players.


    Compensation isn't what it could be, and the org is in a period of transition. Too much emphasis now on short-term milestones rather than late-stage development. Disproportionate level of politics and red tape for a small company. Communication is AWFUL at times, and there aren't any real efforts to make it better through project management or other means. Ph.D. scientists lacking any management skill are put in senior management positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more emphasis on hiring people with management experience as well as experience in pushing drug development programs through the entire approval process. Listen to those in the trenches.
