    I have been working at Aegerion full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is one of the best jobs I've ever had; no joke. The "Cons" (below) are easy to focus on because of their prevalence and severity, but non are of the type that (imo) would make for a poor-environment. With that said - the Pros: • Culture. Everyone is nice. And not just to-your-face nice; I'd actually grab a beer with anyone here. • Opportunity. This is the silver-lining to limited resources; creativity is...

    Cons

    For those unfamiliar with the company's history, I refer you to Google. The repercussions of past decisions are still being felt, even though all bad elements have been stripped out. And I can't emphasize that last point enough; aside from the name, 2018 Aegerion is in no way anywhere remotely close to 2013 Aegerion.

    I have been working at Aegerion full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    No silos; employees are empowered to jump into various business roles and make an impact. Fellow employees are talented and principled.

    Cons

    Financial challenges are impacting the potential for future growth. Stock will likely never be impactful for those looking for that type of incentive.

    Advice to Management

    Enhance transparency with respect to financials and the plan for future growth; increase communications to employees during difficult times to allay festering concerns.

    Unreal expectations, need to make adjustments in work load, many wearing multiple hats since the many layoffs

    New management has absolutely no clue about Rare Disease or the market! Board needs to take a hard look at upper management and make changes sooner than later

      I worked at Aegerion full-time for 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.
