My position was not described accurately from the get go and things went downhill from there.

I have been working at FibroGen

Pros

Some of the people are fun, and it's an interesting neighborhood to be in, though not conveniently situated in terms of public transport access.

Cons

Upper management has zero trust in their employees. This does not cultivate a good work environment, and takes a major toll on loyalty, productivity, and morale. We are treated as "commodities".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire a consultant to teach you how to treat people with respect. Listen to what the consultant tells you, and try to change the culture of your company. Otherwise the revolving door will never stop.

    I worked at FibroGen full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everybody got a desired title and decent salary. Nice view from the office building.

    Cons

    Everything other reviewers already mentioned. Besides, employees always have to pay attention to what's going on at least 16 hours a day. The senior management tends to make every penny worth on everything. This results in pushing outside service providers very hard, but they don't get paid in a timely manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please figure out why is FibroGen always hiring people to replace those who left?

    Gained lots of experience in many different areas, despite the very toxic environment.

    I worked at FibroGen

    Pros

    Very interesting technologies, could be first in class drug approval, great location and facitily, people generally easy to work with.

    Cons

    EXTREME micromanagement; CEO blames employees for everything so he avoids accountability for not making decisions, and upper managment shrinks in response without standing up for the people they manage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your smart and loyal employess; the CEO needs to be less paranoid that his employess are out to pull a fast one; trust their judgement, that's why you hired them.
