    Pros

    The mission of the organization is inspiring; the unique business model means we are at the forefront of a new way of doing business; the leadership is excellent.

    Cons

    Small staff means a lot of people are over-stretched and sometimes internal communication is overlooked. Leadership seems committed to improving this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More team building and internal communication about key decisions would further boost morale.

    I worked at Medicines360 full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of freedom in time management, working from home, dealing with illness. Benefits were competitive and some surprising rewards inclusive of financial and other. Chance to do good work for society.

    Cons

    Management decisions are slow in coming. Communication is poor across the organization. Just one or two people make all of the decisions and then fallout comes later.

    I have been working at Medicines360 (more than a year)

    Pros

    The organization has really created a community out of its employees, partially through their hiring practices and partially via the mission-driven nature of the company that really serves to unify the diverse work that is performed across departments.
    Maintaining focus on the mission helps to keep work rewarding.
    Schedules are flexible, the office location is convenient, and there is a lot of positive reinforcement from senior management.

    Cons

    Sometimes the pace can be a little too fast.
    Benefits are good for a non-profit but not amazing, as is to be expected.

    I have been working at Medicines360 full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Progressive, socially minded company
    Highly motivated and highly intelligent colleagues
    Strong social justice mission being implemented by health innovation for women's reproductive health
    Convenient financial district (SF) location

    Cons

    So much to do, so little time. M360 is a young company, and is trying to tackle a big social problem. This seems to be typical start up fervor, but can feel overwhelming at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course and keep us focused on delivery. Young companies risk biting off more than they can chew, so to speak.

  6.  

    Expectations are not effectively communicated because they are not completely understood by upper management

    I worked at Medicines360

    Pros

    public transit for Commute, flexible work schedules

    Cons

    Management is inept at utilizing subject matter experts for execution of activities at the strategic planning level. Upper management members are unfamiliar with requirements necessary to execute and implement operational activities per regulatory requirements and do not have the subject matter expertise or experience to carry out such activities..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consult subject matter experts or personnel experience before defaulting to the decision of executive members who have no knowledge or working experience in critical areas.
