I have been working at Alexion Pharmaceuticals

Pros

Explosive growth has led to massive valuation of stocks and options that were worth nothing a decade ago.

Cons

Explosive growth has uncovered issues with management - they are still functioning like a small time biotech, but have a $19B market cap to keep up with. Poor management hierarchy, rife with yes-men, and no development or growth opportunities. You come here to make money and that's really it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some real managers in place, listen to your existing management team, the turnover will eventually catch-up and a blockbuster monoclonal antibody can only keep you going for so long.

    I have been working at Alexion Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best reason is to get the money like if you have responsabilities that no one have here

    Cons

    If you are looking only to your wallet you can enter this company, If you are looking for a great place to work do not apply here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It will be very hard for all of you to get another job like this so keep it up....and good luck.
