"Questionable management maturity in a small shop"

No opinion of CEO

Pros

Decent holiday parties. Small pharma mentality.

Cons

People who are offensive or abusive should not be tolerated in any way. Alkermes rewards bad management behavior, does nothing to rid itself of the people who are self-serving and dictatorial, and promotes an uncaring disrespectful atmosphere toward its employees.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the lowest levels of the organization. They often go unheard, and fear management retaliation.

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

    Pros

    I have been here almost four years and it is a great place to work. I have friends in the industry and it seems that their companies do not compare any where close to what is happening at Alkermes.

    Cons

    I would like to see more flexible remote working. It is hit or miss currently depending on which department you work in.

    Advice to Management

    Have Richard Pops speak more. We love seeing his presentation. Maybe do monthly town halls.

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

    Pros

    Passionate colleagues and exciting work. High performers are recognized and given growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Explosive growth currently causing growing pains. Communication from top down has been a trouble area resulting in much frustration for mid level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on clear communication and alignment. You've got amazing people here who are truly passionate about helping patients and Alkermes continued success . If you keep your people well informed and empowered they will want to push even harder for you.
