Pros

Excellent benefits, salary competetive. The level of science is top notch. Very experienced dealing with regulatory agencies, with generally a positive relationship. Sales staff are well-informed on the products and very effective. Very high energy level in the R&D space.

Cons

Lack of a mission is leading to focus on bottom line quarter to quarter. too many shifts in therapeutic area focus and strategy. Too many management starts and stops engenders the belief that there is no long-term plan. The benefits to the patients are not the primary driver any longer. Departments are not well connected and work as isolated pockets, leading to a me-first attitude on a dept. level. High risk-acceptance toward quality systems could lead to real problems with regulators. No critical management roles filled internally, so no continuity of culture.

Advice to Management

Develop and communicate a true mission and culture. Be willing to invest in people, systems and tools that will streamline processes and improve productivity. Value past successes to make them reproducible: Don't reinvent the whole process for each product.

    Pros

    Good benefits, most of the employees are nice and welcome new staff and are helpful, great starting work experience for biotech on resume.

    Cons

    Most managers are too caught up in their own world and they do not reward their staff for what they accomplish. Lower salary structure.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your staff and offer bonuses and better raises as they are the ones that make the company what it is today
