Pros

Great location, the building is very nice.

Cons

The science is almost non existent. There is no pipeline and very little basic research. The science is not publishable in even the lowest quality journals. Management is stifling, the best ideas are never followed up.

Advice to Management

Sell your assets to a real biotech company who knows how to develop drugs for the clinic!

    Pros

    Possible IPO and payoff and working on some biotech breakthroughs.

    Cons

    Far too much backstabbing and complete lack of creativity. CEO who should be replaced by someone with more people skills.

    Advice to Management

    You will never attract or let alone retain smart and talented people unless you do a serious culture shift.

    Pros

    great team, supportive directors, great salary, good location, gym, and cafeteria

    Cons

    everything having to do with contracts and budgets is SLOW and the selected vendors for studies are bottom of the barrel

    Advice to Management

    keep pushing for bigger study budgets/better vendors!
