Corporate politics, more management than workers

Histological Technician (Current Employee)
Winston-Salem, NC

I have been working at PDL

ProsGood benefits and excellent pay or golden handcuffs.

ConsWorkload is unreasonable. High stress and high volume that is centered on a small amount of people.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement has no idea how to manage. It is the buddy system and only "yes men" are rewarded regardless of education and experience. If you are liked they will give you the moon. People who work hard and produce are not rewarded or recognized.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Senior management incompetence

Senior Scientist (Former Employee)

I worked at PDL

ProsLevel of flexibility, good mid-level management, interesting science, good technology, good academic collaborators

Consfavouritism, incompetent management, people who dont know what they dont know and who dont care that they dont know, lack of openess, total lack of responsibility

Advice to Senior Managementreplace research management with scientists who care and understand drug development and really passionate about bringing new medicines to patients
focus on values rather then just set of skills
improve communication between groups, be less process oriented and more people oriented

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Fantastic bio-tech company that was restricted by Wall Street

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at PDL

ProsGreat work environment. Open lines of communications with top management. Superb talent among sales force. Very generous for top performers.

ConsPoor execution of bringing new products to the market. Could have been the top critical care/ hospital based company. No vision for the future after generic entrance.

Advice to Senior ManagementLimit the influence of the Wall Street on the company's managerial decisions. Focus on "boutique" application of human anti-body technology rather than on "cure for all" approach.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
