I have been working at Pharmacyclics full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Collaboration between functional groups is good, highly motivated colleagues, our drug is going to make a difference for many patients. Company culture is friendly, open door, and people are held to high standards.

Cons

Growth from start up to a real pharma company means we are still putting infrastructure in place. I work long days to keep on top of the workload.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As we have grown, upper management is less visible.

    Pros

    great product but completely messed up the launch and focused so much time on an indication that the product did not have at launch

    Cons

    Forced to train on "Genius Traits" which is very much like scientology of which the CEO is a member. Horrible culture. They fire people willy nilly. It is very clique-ish. If you didn't come over from Genentech you won't be part of the inner sanctum so you can kiss you chances of career development goodbye. I would avoid this company like the plague. Someone should buy them just to get the great product and get rid of all the management and in house team.

    Pros

    none comes to mind .

    Cons

    fake, apple polisher, politics. the fake and apple polishers get the promotions. they push, push, push you to your limits until you break. very high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there is a huge gap between the executives and the rest. the executives get their way, do whatever they want, no one's watching them. while the rest of us employees are tired and pushed to hate their jobs. when they see undeserved people get promoted, they question why are they here at Pharmacyclics. you help the sick, but you don't help your own first.
