    Pros

    Strong mission: launching (europe/canada) or late-stage trials (US) for first product for a rare disease.
    Fast-paced: decisions are made fast and implemented fast
    Internal communications are strong: clear vision, objectives and goals are well-communicated internally
    Quirky high-performers are tolerated (encouraged?)

    Cons

    Hierarchical: too much respect for management layers, eg you can't speak to your boss' boss, without prior permission (and often boss' boss won't speak with you, unless your boss is present)
    Tendency to utilize over-qualified external consultants/contractors so as to ensure quality (although these externals are over-paid, bored, and take the know-how away with them)

    Advice to Management

    With such fast growth, take care to preserve the culture, the leanness and the fast decision-making as InterMune transitions to the next level

  2. Great Company, great people. Acquired by Roche/Genentech Fall 2014.

    Pros

    Great Salaries, Great Benefits. Small enough so that you're exposed to many facets of the business.

    Cons

    Those with ability to get things accomplished become over-burdened with projects. But that's the same everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck in your next positions. It's been great working with you.
