Great experience - poor leadership

Former Employee - Quality Assurance Associate  in  Seattle, WA
Former Employee - Quality Assurance Associate in Seattle, WA

Pros

-Benefits, work life balance, co-workers, 'feel good industry', downtown location

Cons

-Leadership/Board doesn't seem to make the right decisions, Stock granted is not worth anything so not a good indication of overall salary/pay. Leadership/Board of Directors seem to think of the stock only and not as much about growing the company, thinking of the patient first (one of the values!)...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let people on the front line make decisions and listen to them - stop making poor decisions that impact stock and physician's decision to use the product.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Team mentality. Cutting edge science and process development activities. Very different from typical biotechs.

    Cons

    Company stability fluctuates wildly due to stock price. New technology is taking longer for Dr's to become comfortable with than traditional biotech products.

    Current Employee - Manufacturing Associate II in Morris Plains, NJ

    Pros

    As a newer company, there are many improvement projects in place and everyone is given the opportunity to participate in projects of their choice. There is also a relaxed workplace attitude.

    Cons

    There is a great deal of secrecy. Shift schedules are changed very often and without much notice. Many changes are made which make the job more difficult instead of resort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SOP changes should involve more input from the department with the most responsibilities as listed on the document.
