It's a different Nektar

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Carlos, CA

ProsThe Nektar of the last few years has made great advances in providing the systems and support that employees need to get their jobs done. Management now diversifies the company so we're not dependent on a single drug anymore. The atmosphere is friendly, and the backstabbing is at a minimum.

ConsSome of the employees who are long-term sometimes act like they're privileged or something, even though it's a fundamentally different company now.

What you did for Exubera means nothing anymore. Move forward!

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing. People might not agree with every single move the company makes, but the overall direction is looking great.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
