    I have been working at CV Therapeutics

    Pros

    Some very good people here, some interesting compounds in development.

    Cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget this company develops drugs for heart patients -- it's a limitation, but it's also a strength.

    I worked at CV Therapeutics

    Pros

    -Entrepreneurial start-up culture willing to give new ideas a chance
    -For employees who worked harder and sought out situations to prove their capabilities there were opportunities for job advancement within and growth outside of their field
    -CEO willing to make big bets on intuition
    -Overall competent co-workers in R&D

    Cons

    -Near the end as revenue projections did not meet actuals for a few years, the decision to try to keep as many of the R&D programs active as possible placed a prolonged strain on R&D
    -CEO willing to make big bets on intuition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the focus of the firm shifted from R&D to Commercial, more decision making authority should have been considered for senior R&D mgt
