I have been working at NPS Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 5 years)
Good people, expanding fast, some of the departments like tech-ops have talented professionals. Year end gifts are nice.
Management is clueless Culture of hiding everything from employees, decisions made only at the top. Constant budget cuts
Helpful (2)Doesn't RecommendNo opinion of CEO
When I joined NPS in 2007, the company was a large, friendly family. People were highlyu educated and work well together. The CEO held open meetings to inform workers of what the company was doing. During development of its first New Drug Application, I hired a number of workers and received initial support for my efforts.
After data problems and other crises, things started falling apart. In fighting, day long debates on wording in documents, secret meetings, limited access to information needed to write documents, hiring of people with few skills and very difficult to handle opinions all ensued. Eventually, the company imploded.
Advice to Management
Stay as a small company, developing quality drugs that can be sold to others--or be bought out by another company. The current CEO is not the one under which I worked.
