I have been working at PDL

Pros

Good benefits and excellent pay or golden handcuffs.

Cons

Workload is unreasonable. High stress and high volume that is centered on a small amount of people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management has no idea how to manage. It is the buddy system and only "yes men" are rewarded regardless of education and experience. If you are liked they will give you the moon. People who work hard and produce are not rewarded or recognized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    replace research management with scientists who care and understand drug development and really passionate about bringing new medicines to patients

    I worked at PDL

    Pros

    Great work environment. Open lines of communications with top management. Superb talent among sales force. Very generous for top performers.

    Cons

    Poor execution of bringing new products to the market. Could have been the top critical care/ hospital based company. No vision for the future after generic entrance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Limit the influence of the Wall Street on the company's managerial decisions. Focus on "boutique" application of human anti-body technology rather than on "cure for all" approach.
