    Pros

    lots of opportunity to invest and beef off any technical skills you may want to harness, seeming they contribute to project.

    Cons

    Work pace is often fast, with deadlines that seem to come out of the blue and are demanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    recognize the associates. Foster a culture of recognition at all levels. Nix the leadership on the backs of others

    I worked at Momenta Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    Lots of good paying positions, lots of supportive coworkers

    Lots of meetings where everyone is required to present, some workers who work too hard and scrutinize those who do not work as hard

    I worked at Momenta Pharmaceuticals as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The office culture is amazing. Everyone makes you feel welcome even if you are new into the environment. There is a lot to learn as it is mid sized company

    Cons

    There are 2 branches of the company but the connection between those 2 buildings is hardly there. It feels like they are 2 different companies in themselves.

    Pros

    Cutting-edge research, good vacation policies, flexible daily hours, commuting benefits, small company offers lots of opportunities to contribute individually

    Cons

    Atmosphere and culture depends on your group. I found my department (BioProcess Development) to be very divided, with lots of exclusive cliques resulting in overall communication issues. Work harder not smarter attitude. The nature of the research (biosimilars) creates higher financial risks, meaning money concerns are always present.

    QA could be a great group if the company invests in new management

    I worked at Momenta Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company is very flexible with hours. The Research and Analytical groups are great to work with and there are some very intelligent and hardworking people there.

    Cons

    QA management lacks the appropriate knowledge and skills to lead the group. There is no communication between management and their employees. The AD of the group has only worked for one other GMP company and doesn't possess the development knowledge to lead the group. This person also does not have the management skills and the high turnover is the result of this mismanagement. This AD has only worked with one Quality system and will not take advice from others with the knowledge of various Quality systems. The performance evaluations are a joke and the midyear is even worse. If you are looking for a good QA job please seek employment elsewhere. The department has lost 4-5 people in the past year and I don't see it getting any better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp the QA group. Hire new QA management with experience in various quality systems and ensure that these new people are familiar with development Quality not GMP.
