    I worked at Aegerion full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paycheck. Paycheck. Paycheck and not much else.
    Interesting Need to write a book called, "When bad companies happen to good employees".

    Cons

    IMO, Vindictive, grotesque company culture incredible amounts of gossip coming out of corporate and weekly upheaval with continually changing roles. Constantly fearful of managements reactions and losing our jobs. Lay offs have been the cherry on top.

    Advice to Management

    The questions is moot.

    I worked at Aegerion full-time

    Pros

    The company has a very inspiring mission - meeting the unmet need of patients with rare disease. Further, extraordinarily talented, mission-driven employees have been attracted to Aegerion.

    Cons

    The company is completely led by Sales leaving other voices such as Medical, Clinical, and Regulatory diminished in their role. Collectively, senior leadership is not in tune with state--of-the-art leadership practices.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt leadership and management practices that allow the talented people you have hired to do their job. Get some team development help and coaching for senior leadership. Effort has been put into the development of middle management. Unfortunately, this effort is for naught if senior leadership is unable to model for their direct reports.
