BioMarin is loosing focus and personnel

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Novato, CA

I worked at BioMarin Pharmaceutical

ProsGood product pipeline, great people at the 'worker bee' level.

ConsWorst upper management ever experienced, talk a good game but no reality. JJ is loosing focus of orphan products and going for the almighty dollar. Was a good place to work but no longer cares about patients or employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
