    Lots happening, things moving quickly

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Anacor

    Pros

    Intelligent colleagues that seem to really enjoy what they're doing. Lack of structured systems allows for flexibility in work styles. Company making big progress in the field,

    Cons

    Often large changes in leadership with little or no warning. Leadership distant from rest of workforce. Little room for personal growth when starting as a temp employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for better visibility in leadership, more communication with employees

    Former Employee - Analytical Chem in Palo Alto, CA

    I worked at Anacor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Best part is the potential of the science and technology to solve medical problems. Adequate infra-structure

    Benefits are adequate

    Cons

    Some managers are psycho, others are good scientists. Some mediocre, hired by last CEO for political purposes. Politics eclipses science and personnel development..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new CEO needs to bring back some earlier senior managers, including the CSO and Med Officer. Also sever ties with those that have hung on, or protected politically by DP. Then the employees will be happier about the company and trusting of senior management.

    I have been working at Anacor as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Professional and friendly environment. Competent researchers and professionals that allow an easy integration at the work place. Strong guidance from the supervisors

    Cons

    It is an small company with few career opportunities for foreign workers. Some improvements at common and individual areas should be done.
