    I worked at Array BioPharma full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are wonderful to work with; they are flexible and have a healthy work/home life balance.

    Cons

    Some of the decisions made by the executives are questionable. Not sure if they are made with the best of the company in mind. There are frequent layoffs, so you never quit feel secure.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to some of your long term employees, they have great ideas.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great colleagues, good benefits, great location. Flexible hours makes this place bearable. Off site training is encouraged.

    Cons

    Unless you are in the clinical group, hiring has been stagnate. Upper management is among the worst that I've ever experienced and has no clue what they are doing. They have either fired or run of any upper management executive that cared. I will be surprised if this place is not a virtual company within the next 2 years. The moral at the company is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and communication will go a long way. Don't talk about how much you care and what are common goal should be and then do something that goes against everything that you just said.

    I have been working at Array BioPharma full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The scientists here are probably the best in the country, so the compounds we are developing are scientifically very interesting. The work-life balance, and the general company culture is very enjoyable.

    Cons

    Although discovery will identify interesting targeted agents, Array lacks the expertise to develop it in house. The current paradigm of outsourcing means that we all are not doing the job that we were hired to do, and instead manage CRO vendors to do the job we want to do. Senior management is lacking in leadership abilities.

    I worked at Array BioPharma full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    II loved working with world class chemists and biologists who discovered and developed new pharmaceutical compounds

    Cons

    Uncertainty of stability of the company as focus changed from drug discovery to clinical development and new executive management

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer to allocation of resources for the company;s future rather than large expenditures for new executive furniture and marketing ventures.
