    I worked at Dyax (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Best place I have ever worked. Allow employees to make their own decisions to drive revenue. Promote from within whenever possible.

    Cons

    Would have liked to have more resources in some instances. Our competitors had more resources and it helped them drive additional business.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for all of the support that you gave the Commercial team. Your patient focused leadership allowed everyone in the company to keep patients at the forefront of everything we did.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    I worked in a group that had a lot of freedom to explore new technologies and bring in the nest tools. Easy to get the tools I needed to do my job effectively. Good work was frequently rewarded.

    Cons

    A second group I worked in had several leaders who disagreed about everything. The politics in that group were just ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure I have any useful advice for the management. I did find it frustrating that the interpersonal relations of the people in one team I worked on seemed to work against getting the job done most efficiently and effectively.

    "A smaller but dynamic company"

    Pros

    Because it's not one of the larger biotechs, it can be more nimble making decisions (less red tape) and can be more aggressive in its hiring and retention practices. Compensation always seemed slightly higher than the norm in general. Professional yet not stuffy environment. Casual Fridays. Pay Day parties in the office at least once a month with beer/wine/catering brought in. Because of its size (around 200 people, give or take) you get to know people well. A lot of young staff - often hang out together outside of the office. Even older staff are embraced and appreciated for their contributions. Competitive benefits package. Mission driven company.

    Cons

    Again because of its size and relatively young staff, it can occasionally get clique-y, but never in a harsh way where anyone would feel unduly excluded. Inevitable office politics that can crop up in smaller circles. Some would say favoritism by managers would occasionally come into play. Scientists and business staff work on different floors so you have to make an effort to get to know people in the other teams/departments - there's not a lot of natural cross-pollination.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value the great staff you have working for you, especially following the layoff last year. It was a great gesture to recognize those who were laid off.
