    Friendly, engaging coworkers with young energetic spirit that is slowly morphing into a bureaucratic mess

    I worked at Theravance

    Pros

    Easy to approach anyone of any level and talk to them
    Company is strong on fit and generally tries to get people who are looking for more than just clocking in and out
    Fantastic brain trust in research
    Good work-life balance for the most part

    Cons

    Hours can be inflexible during certain projects
    Promotion and career advancement support is sometimes spotty
    Senior management often cuts from the bottom before hitting the fat in the middle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time trying to develop talent from within rather than firing and hiring from the outside
    A lot of recent layoffs have involved gutting a whole department and then rebuilding it, often causing friction
