Nektar is O.K. place to work

Scientist (Former Employee)
San Carlos, CA

I worked at Nektar Therapeutics

ProsVery good benefits compared with other companies- lots of holidays, time off, company events, etc. Also the insurance and other benefits offered is top notch. When I first started there, I really beleived in the company and what we were doing, but I lost faith due to lack of direction about a year after I started there.

ConsPoor senior leadership and lack of company direction. It can be exasperating to try to get things done, because there exists conflicting processes within the company to do the same thing, depending on who you ask or what department you go to.

Advice to Senior Managementneed to really define the direction the company is going
