  1.  

    My experience was fun, exciting, challenging early on but then got disengaged with how the company was managed and lead.

    Lack of accountability. Lack of career development. Lack of Transparency. Managers who are unable to manager and lead. SENIOR MANAGEMENT!!!!

    I worked at ArQule full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and flexible work schedule

    Cons

    Strange culture / Very political / Silos / Valued outsiders more than long-term employees / Had to be a scientist for your opinion to count

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and commit to it / Reduce the number of managers by about 50%

    I worked at ArQule full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    With this job market, working at Arqule bringing home a paycheck is better than being jobless.

    Cons

    Factors other than hardworking were weighed. Very bad working environment and culture. I worked there for about two years and felt stressful everyday. Some manager's opinions superseded scientific rationales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get less emotional managers.

    I worked at ArQule full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule with minimal managerial oversight. Traditionally, there has been a great pool of people to work with. Location north of Boston is desirable and works well into work life balance.

    Cons

    Underpay and under value key G&A positions. Solely focused on scientists and upper management. Key positions in upper management have been there a long time so not much has changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to see the value in your individual contributors and lower levels of management. Individual contributors are the life blood of the business.
