    I have been working at Spectrum Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Decent location in Orange County. Fridays are casual and you can bring your dog into work.

    Cons

    Lack of processes companywide. Salary is on the low end, and the benefits are low to mid-range. Very few people stay here for very long, and they lose the knowledge and information they had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to keep people here instead out touting the high turn over rate. Keep better records and maintain information and data from people who leave.

    I have been working at Spectrum Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The expense reporting recently was improved and now paid within a week.

    If you don't like senior management wait about 12 months. The CEO will put a new regime in to fix the declining product sales.

    Cons

    CEO way too involved and very shrewd when it comes to giving any stock RSU/options or salary increases. CEO also couldn't tell you anything about how to sell the products company has. CEO likes to buy bottom feeder drugs no other company wants.

    They have no clue in how to sell and launch orphan drugs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company for a tax inversion from the foreign country tax designations.
    Please don't follow me to my new oncology company and screw that one up as well.

    Pros

    Nothing much. No rewards. No growth.

    Cons

    No rewards. No growth. Promotions are offered to employees who have good relations with the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of the show up with vegas party and all, the company should pay good for the employees for all the work

    I have been working at Spectrum Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    Each department as a whole is well ran by experienced people who support their team members and seek professional development and fairness for their direct reports.

    Vacation time is generous (Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve - New Years Day)

    Cons

    While each department is headed by experienced and caring people they are often over-ruled by the CEO. There is minimal room for professional development, promotions and fair raises are non-existent. CEO excessively micro-manages each department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the CEO: Trust your team and the key leaders you have put into place to manage their departments.
