I have been working at Moderna Therapeutics full-time (less than an year)

Pros

snacks and soda are provided

Cons

Moderna has unrealistic expectations of time commitment for all employees. The workloads are outrageous and extremely high turnover puts more stress on already strung out employees who remain. Bad science practices, blame and finger pointing abound and poor management and lack of planning send reverberations throughout the entire company on a daily basis.

    Pros

    None. Literally none. The building is kind of nice.

    Cons

    This place is a disaster. The CEO and CSO have no respect for the employees. It was made clear from the beginning that everyone is completely replaceable, but that plan seems to have backfired as they are now hemorrhaging people, and the new people they do hire are useless. They've lost over 10 people in 10 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do yourselves and the company a favor and quit, you are clearly not compatible.

    I worked at Moderna Therapeutics full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's in a great location in Cambridge.

    Cons

    The culture of the company is very dysfunctional and, frankly, frightening. A lot of people have been fired which management backs up using questionable, if not blatantly false, information. People are leaving the company faster than they can hire new people. So, between the firings and resignations, there's a lot of gossip and badmouthing going on within the company and an overall atmosphere of hostility and fear. Management takes advantage of employees by overworking them and then excluding them from getting proper recognition and credit---if anything, management actually punishes productive people by taking things away from them. It is common practice for the management team to position employees against each other in what appear to be bizarre mind games.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is run by an abusive and unbelievably disrespectful management team. Drop the take-it-or-leave-it attitude you have with working with employees because they are all leaving, you're not that great.
