    Pros

    Very active pipeline; many learning opportunities

    Stop pursuing OpEx endeavors that will ultimately die on the vine.

    Pros

    By far, the best part about working for Amylin was the people. In my department, we had a GREAT team of people who all got along and worked together.

    Cons

    The negativity and all the whining and complaining from the Sales force was the worst I had ever seen in my entire career.

    Advice to Management

    Well, at this point, there is really nothing I can say to management, since they don't exist anymore.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, management support of career development and promotions. Generous options and bonus packages. I would recommend this place to others.

    Cons

    Not too many cons that I can think of...company was purchased by BMS and AZ in the last two years. I believe the San Diego site is going to be shut down.

    Pros

    This is (was) a great company to work for. Great culture, people, exciting and meaningful work that helped many diabetes patients.

    Cons

    The company was purchased by a large east coast pharmaceutical company and therefore is being closed down in San Diego. Just a shell of the once great company it was.
