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.

    I worked at Alexion Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Dynamic, fast-paced environment. Lots to do. Engaging Colleagues. Life-changing products. Brilliant local managerial team.

    Cons

    Overtime was a constant fixture due to challenges coming from Connecticut. The odd micromanager who worked until 3am and expected you to do the same.

    Advice to Management

    Management is now on the right track and is clearly focused on the pipeline and bringing in new opportunities. Don't lose focus on the people.
