    Actelion has one great product but lack professional management for long term grow.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat pay in a rewarding therapeutic area.

    Actelion is not a good place for contract employees

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) South San Francisco, CA

    ProsFlexible schedule, M-F regular business hours. South San Francisco office is in a nice location.

    ConsActelion is not a good place for a contract employees. The company discriminate their contracts, not like in other places where contracts feel welcome and part of the group. They don't include contracts in regular meetings, even tough you need it for your job. Not to mention that contracts are not welcome, whenever meals are served for their regular employees. That is so rude from my point of view.
    This company does not a good infrastructure, because they rather keep on training new contracts instead of creating 'permanent' jobs. They prefer to pay contracts to save money and that's the reason why contracts leave very often. There is no future for contracts to get a permanent job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease treat the contract employees the same as you would like to be treated. Other companies are different and they don't put the contract on 'the side'
