I have been working at Moderna Therapeutics full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The strength of Moderna is in the potential of the technology that we are working on. For the most part the people working in the lab make it easier to deal with some of the stress and pressure thrown at the research staff by upper management.

Cons

The poor planning and the changing of experiments and goals on the fly makes it extremely difficult at times to execute the proper experiments. There is also a sense of disrespect towards the research associates by upper management. The feeling is that they do not care about our personal time and our personal obligations outside of the Moderna building. This has lead to a turn style type turnover in employees. Some of the turnover was a good thing for the company as it removed some of the excess baggage; however, there also has been very skilled people who have left the company and that can not happen if Moderna is going to be succesful.

Advice to Management

It is important for management to realize that they need to respect their employees time and opinions because there are many very skilled and intelligent people in the lab that are not easily replaced. The compensation and benefits offered also need to become more competitive or people will continue to leave.

    I have been working at Moderna Therapeutics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of smart people who want to collaborate and drive the science forward. Glad some of the early hire 'nay sayers' are gone. A meritocracy that rewards and recognizes good performance in a work hard, play hard environment. Solid benefits and lots of cool stuff to get involved in at and after work. Great employee family event yesterday. Not the same company as 2 years ago - getting all grown up.

    Cons

    Space is tight due to rapid growth but expansion plans have been shared with all employees at one of the regular all employee meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in people. More individual development needed
