    Pros

    Strong collaboration. CEO has saved the company from disaster after Pfizer pulled out.

    Cons

    No career development opportunities in my department. I'm working 10 hours day and am answering emails 18/7 a day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that your mid level managers are worthy of leading your lower level employees.

    Pros

    Good product platform and great growth opportunities. Small company feel, but global presence. Company has moved from single product, to much more diverse projects and products. Good scientists and exciting new projects. Some managers are very solid. Generally, the Company is not afraid to discipline employees who are not performing well, including terminating them as appropriate. Company pays well, even for the SF Bay Area.

    Cons

    Senior Mgmt can be elitist, and doesn't always demonstrate that lower level employees are valued as highly as senior level employees. Like many smaller companies, employees sometimes have to wear many hats, and provide coverage for each other frequently - this can be positive (new experiences) or challenging (take away from your progress).
