I have been working at FibroGen full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The building is nice and in a good location. You have access to a cafeteria and a gym on site. The benefits are decent. Salaries are good.

Cons

Unfortunately, the bad reputation of this company precedes itself. The clinical department is a revolving door. Money dictates every decision. The bitterness of low quality is felt long after the sweetness of low cost is gone. Toxicity trickles down from the executive level. There are only two types of people at this organization; the ones with power, and the ones without power. Unfortunately, most people are powerless.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to recruit and keep top talent, the culture must change. The change has to come from the top.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    keep pushing for bigger study budgets/better vendors!
