Pros

People generally are nice. We mostly know each other well.
Employer offers onsite career training, from leadership, communication, to computer skills.

Cons

Company experienced several expension and contractions.
Some people have experienced being laid off twice, it would be difficult to ask them to come back.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be better for senior managment to put more amphasis on longterm growth, rather than short time gains. It would also help if the senior managment be more transparent about ongoing activities.

    I worked at XOMA

    Pros

    There's a feeling that you're in on the beginning of something that could be big, with a lot of potential.

    Cons

    Potential remains unrealized after many years. They have some income from contract manufacturing and patents, but no successful product or their own. Consistent failure to become profitable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate what the company is good at and build on it. Don't try to become the next big biotech sensation in a rented plant.
