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

QA Management (Former Employee)
Cambridge, MA

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

ProsThe 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.

ConsQA 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 Senior ManagementRevamp 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.

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