50% of the CEO
Sanj K Patel
I worked at Synageva BioPharma full-time
Pros – Clear company vision and mission for success. Everyone is accountable and employees that are successful at the company have a can-do attitude, are collaborative and not afraid to go the extra mile to get the job done.
Cons – Fast-paced environment, which is not for everyone. (definitely a pro for people that like an energized management team)
Advice to Senior Management – The company has grown very rapidly in a relatively short amount of time - stay focused on maintaining a healthy corporate culture.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Synageva BioPharma full-time for more than a year
Pros – Exceptionally talented people (some of the best in the industry) working on a great lead product.
Cons – The CEO is a micro-managing egomaniac who doesn't trust the employees, generating an environment where everyone is scared. He needs to step back and let everybody execute on their jobs, and stop demoralizing people on a daily basis. There is no flexibility: if you are not at your desk before 8am and after 6pm it will be noted.
Advice to Senior Management – Force the CEO to focus on strategy and raising money. Prevent him from managing people.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
