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.

    Horrible place to be, but that's been well established by now.

    Pros

    Little to speak of. The couple of recent positive reviews clearly from management team constantly covering up mistakes with even worse decisions. Management did bail this place out years ago, but with deep pockets, not strategic thinking, and leadership.

    This place was perfect for those losers 3 years ago who couldn't get another job and got lucky with stock options.

    Cons

    This is an unethical company first and foremost. Managers are either given promotions, raises, praise when needed to work 'harder' or on the way down when their bonuses are due or disagree with the incompetent management. Rest of workforce are there for to work, work, work endlessly. Treated as subhuman.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This place is hopeless. Turnover is rampant. And they're struggling to find new talent since reputation is in the toilet. No one in their right mind would go there now.

    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.
