  2. "Good Company"

    • Compensation and Benefits
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Acorda Therapeutics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good Salary Excellent Benefits Summer Hours Interaction with Patients thru walks, bike rides, seminars

    Cons

    Management needs to stop having favorites and treat everyone fairly. The environment can feel like high school with the popular cliques.

    Advice to Management

    Model your values versus preaching them. The worst offender being Communicate, Communicate, Communicate, when management does not.

      I have been working at Acorda Therapeutics full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Ok culture, decent facility. Decent health benefits alongside the bonus and Holidays. Flexible hours, great balance between work and PTO and company family events.

      Cons

      People at the bottom are worthless, they do not fight to retain talent. Unfortunately only the management get decent counter offers. They need to value current employees more than potential employees, I will never understand why they would rather let someone go and spend time training new personnel and pay them 15k more than current instead of trying to retain people that have been there for 5+ years.

      Advice to Management

      Fight for your direct reports!
