long time lab head, saw many changes over the years

Principal Investigator (Former Employee) Cambridge, MA

ProsCore sciences (immunology, protein biochemistry) were, at one time, world class. The Neuro group, while weak in Discovery research, can execute on clinical development like no one else in the MS field. Company has had more positive impact on MS patients lives than all others combined.

ConsVicious, relentless political infighting. Every department, every level, every day, played out against a vapid and hypocritical message of transparency and openness. Just vile.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on neurology, dump immunology (its hopeless), remove middle management across the company, fire 2/3rds of the VPs, and read your own vision and core values statements

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
