Pros

Explosive growth has led to massive valuation of stocks and options that were worth nothing a decade ago.

Cons

Explosive growth has uncovered issues with management - they are still functioning like a small time biotech, but have a $19B market cap to keep up with. Poor management hierarchy, rife with yes-men, and no development or growth opportunities. You come here to make money and that's really it.

Advice to Management

Get some real managers in place, listen to your existing management team, the turnover will eventually catch-up and a blockbuster monoclonal antibody can only keep you going for so long.

    Poor cross functional collaboration

    Value the employees who are actually doing the work at the coal face
    Weed out the bullies in management

    I have been working at Alexion Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are no reasons to work at this site. The place is loaded with incompetent resources that have nothing to offer to the industry. The only thing they have is to play the backstabbing game in an attempt to get ahead. I will be resigning next Friday done dealing with the overly ambitious incompetent resources they all want to be managers but cant make a decision

    Cons

    ARIMF is in life support and in a journey to be sold or closed. It is obvious that everything will be moving to Ireland in the next 24 months or less.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting incompetent resources to management roles. Perform an assessment of recently promoted resources and look at their qualifications they simply dont have the skills. They are remnants of the previous bully leadership that promoted incompetent resources to roles that they are not qualified. They are in manufacturing, quality and all over the site
