The usual growing pains of a growing company that is struggling to survive in a down market.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at FivePrime Therapeutics

ProsPeople are generally fun and easy to get along with. Intelligent and capable management group with lots of potential. Medium sized company with small company feel where everyone knows everyone.

ConsWorkload is not evenly distributed. Career development is not emphasized. Difficult to move up within the organization. Five Prime does not support continual education and growth. Promotions aren't necessarily merit based. Morale is generally fairly low.

Advice to Senior ManagementMorale is very low, so motivation to do work is lacking. Those that put in the most work want to feel more appreciated, not less. Too many folks with idle time, reallocation of FTE is necessary.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

ProsThe average age of the employees is below 40. It's a very dynamic atmosphere, where upper management cares about the success of it's employees.

ConsThey generally hire only entry level personnel. The work, although is cutting edge, it is very repetitive.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Fiveprime has a failure to thrive

ProsPeople are fun and generally really nice. Job/career/ project growth is possible with hard work and a little luck.

ConsLack of strong leadership. Lack of INDs. Lower than average pay without acknowledgment by the executives.

Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your employees. Make some good project decisions, we are counting on your knowledge and leadership.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
