    The company had been pretty good until the CEO was replaced

    Research and Development (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsThe product was invented with great science and could have shot if it was not for the bad leadership and management.

    ConsThe company went down hill ever since the former CEO Robert Winslow got replaced by Brian O'callaghan. Because of the bad management and hiring ever since, countless layoffs started happening from 2009. The senior managers kept sucking the funding from one private investor until the end. The company finally was shutdown in 2013.
    Everything happened was kept secret internally and to the public. There was no transparency and the culture was horrible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop posting great reviews to your own.

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

    Small, very dynamic company with strong family feel to it.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsCutting edge science with some excellent scientists doing work in areas of serious unmet medical need. Nice facilities and lovely climate! Company spends on training for it's employees.

    ConsAs with all biotech start ups the major uncertainty always turns on ongoing funding and the need to procure it in order to keep the company going. Experience to date has been positive. If you join this company you had better know what you are doing, the small scale means that there's not many resources available for mentoring within the company
