    Pros

    Ablynx has an exciting technology and good company culture; it's an overall relaxed environment, located in a beautiful and vibrant city with semi-flexible work schedules and a promising future

    Cons

    Salary does not really compare well to similar companies in Belgium but is slightly offset by stability of employment. The other main con is that it's a very hierarchical organization, which lacks any real career development for junior or technical positions. Having a very strong platform also causes some apathy with regards to technological innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Investment in technological innovation would be a good idea IMO, especially in terms of human resources. Too many junior positions in such a hierarchical structure creates a sort of race-to-the-top mentality.

    Pros

    Innovative, if you are lucky to work in a small group. Nice technology and future prospects. New high tech building.

    Cons

    Personal development is not encouraged. Big differences in approach to work load in between departments. It seems that the one department gets all the credits for the work of the whole company.

    Advice to Management

    Try to figure out the differences in between the different departments so all of them get the feeling that they are important for the future of the company. Try to reduce the management work in some cases and let science take over. You could be amazed what surprising things could pop up!
