    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at FivePrime Therapeutics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some people are really engaged and love their jobs. The worker bees are great to be around and make work good.

    Cons

    HR department doesn't support raises or increasing benefits. Upper management is mostly seen as inept. Drugs are not advancing into the clinic. CEO talks about strategy but doesn't say what that strategy is. CEO talks like everything is great, but seems upset with everything. Don't see any career advancement in place.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to erase the culture of retaliation if an employee brings up honest issues - you will be seen as a problem. Stop saying we can't afford to do certain benefits and make it happen. We don't believe you when we can see what you make.

    Pros

    People are generally fun and easy to get along with. Intelligent and capable management group with lots of potential. Medium sized company with small company feel where everyone knows everyone.

    Cons

    Workload is not evenly distributed. Career development is not emphasized. Difficult to move up within the organization. Five Prime does not support continual education and growth. Promotions aren't necessarily merit based. Morale is generally fairly low.

    Advice to Management

    Morale is very low, so motivation to do work is lacking. Those that put in the most work want to feel more appreciated, not less. Too many folks with idle time, reallocation of FTE is necessary.
