    I worked at Geron (More than 5 years)


    Geron was built on great science. It also has a highly experienced team of drug developers. Overall the culture is very science based, data driven, open and collaborative.


    The company has been through a number of set backs a few years back which resulted in multiple layoffs. There was a lot of uncertainty and the moral was low.

    Advice to Management

    Management should continue to support and appreciate those who pull the weight for the company. Hopefully Geron can survive the development hurdles.
