Cons

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fix the performance review process so that employees are properly rewarded for their accomplishments.

    I worked at Depomed

    Pros

    -people at the bench level are pleasant to work with.
    -people at the lower level are technical and knowledgable

    Cons

    -collusion between people in upper management designed to undermine others efforts;

    -lack of accountability, responsibility by upper management "Lead by Consensus" philosophy;

    -decision making is done by consensus. If you disagree with the consensus (2-3 people in upper management) you are labeled a "problem";

    -management approach is to take the shortest, highest risk route rather than the "right" approach. Often make decisions predicated on time lines rather than "correct/industry standard"" or "ethical" approach;

    --promotions through Nepotism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster a culture of diversity in opinion & experience rather than going with the corporate "Bobble Heads"
