    I have been working at MAP Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    The best thing about MAP are their MAPsters.... the People. They have a Weds Lunch that's a great place to see others and take a MUCH NEEDED break from work. Did i say the People?
    The Founder Tom A. is a real pleasure to work with and dedicated. The Product is fantastic and can help MANY people! and and did i mention the People?

    Cons

    There is a clear sense of unfair treatment, there is no appreciation for hard work, politics are huge, the Sr, Management have poor planning skills and are not honest with their people. There is too much Drama and Favoritism. Most have no to little trust for upper management.
    I Agree with the other reviewer... don't even think about working for MAP!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan Plan Plan... Celebrate more, Treat your people like professional HUMAN BEINGS, respect your talent and reward them appropriately and timely.

    I worked at MAP Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    The people, the product, great benefits, perks and compensation. The ability to move up FAST..... IF YOU ARE FAVORED by Executive Management.

    Cons

    Lack of planning on a corporate front, lack of recognition and efforts for employees, lack of fairness, ethics or integrity. Manager and upper executives hold all the power... Employees have little respect for the "leaders", favoritism is alive and well, lack of follow through on "development plans", overworked, unrealistic goals and objectives.... the list goes on....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be fair to EVERYONE,
    plan at least 5 years in advance on multiple products,
    recognize your employees and reward stellar performers,
    respect and retain your talent (no matter their level),
    COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR PEOPLE IN ALL HONESTY
