    I have been working at Sunovion full-time (More than 3 years)


    Sunovion is a great company to work for and there was a huge growth spurt that was taking place. The company is still hiring many new employees.


    There is a ton of hiring happening, but no one is taking about what will happen when the Latuda is gone. There are no communications about new deals. Need more communication to employees before everyone starts to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Consider better communications on the future of the company with Latuda going away in a year. What happens to employees? Will there be layoffs? What new benefits are going to be given to employees? There are tons of recruitment happening in biotech and lots of competition. We need better work/life balance, more options for working from home and less micromanaging.
