    Tough and fraught with political/interpersonal ambiguities that don't add value to the LPs

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSuper bright partners with a great reputation for success

    ConsSecretive culture w/in organization seems to discourage mentoring or iteration.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sharp People, Toxic Culture

    (Former Employee)
    Cambridge, MA

    ProsThe people within the firm are very sharp, and generally fun to interact with on a day-to-day basis. Interesting work; Flagship initiates and invests in companies working on the cutting edge of science, and takes an open-minded approach to new ideas.

    ConsCulture of extreme paranoia and secrecy. Poor communication. The firm treats those "on the outside" (entrepreneurs, interns, experts) very poorly, and generally tries to extract the most that they can from these people while giving little back in return (worse yet, a few people within the firm seem to take particular glee in such behavior). Top-down management; it seems that all decisions must originate from the CEO.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have so many ingredients for success, but I don't think that they'll be realized over the long term unless you start treating employees and other stakeholders in a way that won't alienate them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
