    I worked at OXiGENE

    Pros

    Good place to get experience
    Wealth of opportunities to build your resume
    In theory, you are trying to cure cancer.

    Cons

    Minimal opportunities for advancement
    Minimal opportunities for teamwork
    Minimal opportunities for mentoring--either you can do the job on your own, or you can be replaced

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the work, and ignore what the yahoos on the message boards are saying about you, your research, or your products.
