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.

    I worked at FibroGen

    Pros

    FibroGen has some very interesting clinical programs.

    The facility is top notch for a start-up company.

    You get broad experience since there are so few people in the support groups.

    Cons

    Nothing seems to happen fast due to the slow decision making process.

    The turn-over rate in some departments is very high. There is a lack of continuity in many groups so institutional knowledge is lost.

    Before working for FibroGen you should contact current and former employees to get the real story on the working conditions at FibroGen or you could end up working for a great boss who is powerless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire experienced leaders and let them do their job.

    Empower the staff to do their jobs without so much micromanagement.
