Pros

Management listens and implements suggestions made by employees. As an employee I feel valued and appreciated. Positive, happy vibe in work areas, hear people laughing and enjoying themselves while they work and interact with peers even though many people work long hours. Strong teamwork, everyone supports one another.

Cons

None come to mind so far.

    Pros

    The company has a fantastic lead drug candidate that should be a blockbuster. The organization is still pretty small (a little over 100 people) so you can make a big impact, great for career development. Most people are very friendly and easy to work with. Generally a great place to work.

    Cons

    Management seems to be very into status symbols and making sure staff knows its place. A lot of effort has gone into making executive offices nicer than others with special glass and chairs that others can't have. This creates a have vs. have-not mentality that is not good for morale. A real shame since this takes away from so many positives the company has.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember you are successful due to the hard work of all the people that work for you. When you lavish yourselves with lots of extras, it damages morale in ways that are very hard to repair. The more you can provide the same benefits to everyone, the better it will be.

    Pros

    Good stock price. Potential blockbuster drug

    Cons

    Complete disorganization. Management is dishonest, insincere, backstabbing and apathetic. They treat their employees horribly through tactics of guilt, intimidation and continuous threats to their job. Management tells you to do one thing and then penalizes said employee for actions they initiated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LOSE much of the management. They are only causing harm and further disarray
