    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Array BioPharma as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The intern program was well organized and served as a great stepping stone for me in terms of professional experience. My work actually contributed to the company.

    All the scientists are very knowledgeable in their field and are very friendly. A large majority of the employees have been with the company for over 10 years.

    Cons

    There seemed to be a lack in vision for senior management. Management seems to have lost its roots in drug discovery and decisions are money based. Employees were leaving/resigning at an alarming rate. There wasn't a lot of room for your career to grow within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more decisions with drug discovery in mind.

    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.

    Pros

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

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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