    I worked at Synta Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    Synta is based on very solid science and attracts a lot of good and talented scientists. You have a chance to contribute a lot, and you learn a lot. Good teamwork and good teamplay after work.

    Cons

    BizDev wasn't as successful as they could be. Sometimes Senior Management was building castles in the sky which couldn't stand reality checks.
    Being a medium-size company doesn't allow Synta to promote people within unless someone leaves (which may force some people to leave looking for greener pastures).

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

    Pros

    Co-workers - smart, professional, appreciative and helpful people.

    Cons

    Would not recommend to work for this company. Too political. No stability. Lots of structural changes. Lots of B.S.Two layoffs in one year.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
