Saying yes is more important than knowledge

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) South San Francisco, CA

ProsFast decision making
Deep pipeline
Good people

ConsLack of big pharma experience in the senior management team
Right now compounds are more important than the right compounds
Meeting deadlines is much more important doing good science
Clinical development has too many people with discovery experience and no development knowledge
Pay is much lower than industry average unless in very senior management
Advancement for non Ph.D scientists is not very good

Advice to Senior ManagementRefocus on doing good science
Reward people for their knowledge and abilities, not because they blindly do what you tell them
Put experienced people into clinical development
Treat staff with respect, look after them as well as you look after your own self interests

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
