I worked at Exelixis

Pros

A fast paced Bio-Pharma company that has excellent R&D capabilities and a proven track record for developing novel compounds to treat cancer and metabolic diseases. Challenging work environment and challenging work.

Cons

Because the company does not have any products out on the market it must rely on raising capital by licensing out it's technology, selling stock or borrowing. In these economic times, these are three difficult things to do which can create job uncertainty and instability. The company recently laid off 40% of it's work force.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management needs to work on outlicensing it's technology and raising employee moral after the recent RIF which devastated the company.
