    I worked at MAP Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than a year)


    Prior to the Allergan acquisition, the company's greatest assets were the employees from the bottom to the top. Worked at MAP and cannot think of any bad about the company. Although much has changed since the acquistion. Heard of a second round of lay-offs within the past month by Allergan.


    The CMC issues continue at MAP's contract manufacturing organization as detailed in Allergan's complete disclosure letter which is delaying one of the best Acute Migraine therapeutics from reaching patients throughout the U.S.

    Interview Details

    Half of the 14 people I interviewed with hinted at the stress and unrelenting pressure associated with working here. More than one person said, "The pace here is unsustainable". This was echoed by the head of HR. I made sure to ask each interviewer how long they have been with the company. Most answered about a year or two.

    I was warned by a few of the interviewers that scheduled meetings constantly change at the last minute. On three of my 14 scheduled interviews, someone unexpectedly walked into the room because their Outlook Calendar indicated this room (earlier in the day). However, meetings are changed multiple times in a day, and that's just accepted company behavior.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult part of the interviewing process was having to conduct the same interview, 14 times, at a half hour each interview. Everyone was really nice, though.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was generous, and I reeeeally wanted to accept it just based on that. But, I've learned to acknowledge red flags when the people waving them are the people interviewing you.

MAP Pharmaceuticals knows that a good drug can become a better drug when delivered quickly. The company has developed an inhalation technology and is applying it to existing drugs. Its two lead candidates include a treatment for migraine and a treatment for pediatric asthma. Inhaled drugs can be delivered conveniently and work more quickly than other delivery methods. The company's other candidates include possible treatments for diabetes and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). By focusing on improving the delivery system rather than inventing the actual drug... More
