I worked at The Medicines Company

Pros

Opportunity for broad experience that you wouldnt typically get at other companies (but dont expect to get paid for it)

Cons

Often a reactionary place to work. Employees on call all week (weekend emails) - poor work/life balance. Headquarters not thoughtful for European colleagues (conference calls late at night).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Constantly revisiting decisions marginalises employees and wastes time. Trust in the people that you hired, if you dont, trust them, fire them!

    I have been working at The Medicines Company

    Pros

    Good future growth potential for highly experienced biopharma leaders
