Pros

The average age of the employees is below 40. It's a very dynamic atmosphere, where upper management cares about the success of it's employees.

Cons

They generally hire only entry level personnel. The work, although is cutting edge, it is very repetitive.

    Pros

    People are fun and generally really nice. Job/career/ project growth is possible with hard work and a little luck.

    Lack of strong leadership. Lack of INDs. Lower than average pay without acknowledgment by the executives.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees. Make some good project decisions, we are counting on your knowledge and leadership.

    I have been working at FivePrime Therapeutics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great RAs and scientists who are passionate about their work and striving to improve environment. Lots of potential to have big impact in several areas and promising portfolio. CEO vision is what attracts many to the company, his vision can get lost coming down through the many layers of management.

    Cons

    There is not a culture of team work, the focus is on individual contribution. Top heavy with lots of middle management elbowing for attention at the expense of those performing the work. Popularity and squeaky wheels get the attention and promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ignore the solid quiet contributors for the attention getters. Mentoring would go a long way. Give everyone equal opportunity to strive for the next level and promotions and train managers that career development is key to keeping good employees. You might be surprised by who shines if you pay closer attention to everyone.
