    Pros

    Great co-workers, awesome benefits, opportunity to become a scientist without a PhD. Great work life balance and flexible schedule.

    Cons

    They are talking about changing the benefits that they often use to low ball salary. I worked there for a long time and as of a month ago the company policy was to pay out bonuses to anyone eligible who had completed the fiscal year. I found out the day of my exit interview that effective weeks before they had decided you had to be there to receive it. So I lost my whole bonus and this "policy" is not actually written anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like you are a big pharmaceutical company until you actually have a product on the market. Also, if you keep hiring the way you are, you might want to think about ImmunoGenzyme as a new name for the company.

    Pros

    This company is great for: -Benefits (Health insurance is free) -Performance incentives yearly depending on your performance and the company -Stock options awarded -Generous 401K match, up to 50% of 6% -Great small "perks" such as cookouts, memberships, gatherings, etc. In all, good place to get your foot in the door and learn all the skills you can within a cGMP environment.

    Cons

    While working here, I have encountered great coworkers but was uncomfortable to hear management trash talking about other employees, their was much favoritism that would go on as well, also, the lack of promotions to those employees who deserve it the most by offering their extra time and effort to accomplish critical projects for management happened way too often. Finally, you can say that the pay may not up to industry standards but they try to win you over with their benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Try to have better performance and promotion offers for employees that deserve it, and try to stay within the industry standards for compensation

    Pros

    Really none to speak of at this time. No personal growth unless you are known the to "insider" crowd. Leadership is poor and known for its lack of respect in the local industry

    Cons

    Management has no respect for employees. Very controlling and claustrophobic atmosphere. Turnover is one of highest in the industry due to HR and the culture of vengeance they create.

    Advice to Management

    Terminate all upper management and hire people that will learn to respect people's opinions

    Pros

    ImmunoGen provides a decent work/life balance. Excellent health care and time off policies. Compounds and technology is interesting.

    Cons

    Career development and personal growth are not exactly a priority. There are many who have been employed for 10 plus years and do not take too kindly to ideas that are innovative and different. Some have the "we have always done it that way" attitude, which is difficult to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    More encouragement toward professional development and implementing new or more robust processes and place trust in those who are not "lifers", but can contribute just as much, if not more because of their outside experiences.

    Pros

    It is exciting to be a part of the team that develops great anti-cancer drugs like T-DM1, which benefits a lot of cancer patients.

    Cons

    The company is still lacking capability is many drug development areas. There is uncertainty when the company will get sold.

    Pros

    Good place to work, good and interesting science, and they are making some advancements in oncology research. There is a lot of intra-department mingling. so most departments know what is going on in other departments. Good health insurance.

    Cons

    Group dynamics aren't always good. There's a lot of gossip going on.

    Advice to Management

    Better, competitive wages, and more promotions. Get a handle on the gossip.
