Featured Review

Current Employee - Associate Director, Clinical Operations

I have been working at Nektar Therapeutics full-time for more than a year

Pros

Nektar has a truly engaging work environment that promotes a work/life balance and cares about their employees. Leadership is engaging and approachable. Transparent with company goals and vision. ... Leaders mentor and leads from the ground up, position seems to be valued and appreciated regardless of your title and role. I was very nervous about moving into this industry and working for a smaller company however it has turned out to be the best decision I made. Only wish I had done it years ago.

Cons

Nektar is growing rapidly and has numerous high profile projects ongoing. Sometimes the communication does not keep up with the changing environment.

Advice to Management

Continue to put your teams and work environment first. I have personally witnessed individual employees who are toxic and unable to work in a team environment who are addressed by the leaders in... quick manner. These actions set a crucial tone within the company that certain behavior and actions that lead to a negative work environment will not be tolerated regardless of your role. This definitely adds to employees confidence in Nektar Leadership.
