Current Employee - Project Manager in Gaithersburg, MD
Current Employee - Project Manager in Gaithersburg, MD
No opinion of CEO

Pros

good health benefits
fair salary
good yearly bonus
good relocation package
work from home 1 to 2 days a week

Cons

No room for career advancement
The promotion policy needs to be clear and equitably applied to all employees
 You cannot expect employees to stay when you freeze promotion cycles. This is not only demoralizing for the employees who were submitted for promotion, but it is also demoralizing for the other employees in the company.
Too many initiatives
upper level managment is out of touch and or negative at times
hiring process is slow, burdensome and ineffective at best
employee morale has quickly eroded in the last 6 months
retention rates will continue to worsen

Advice to Management

With the exception of Peter Greenleaf, upper level management seems incapable of communicating in a positive way to the employees.

    "Beautiful facilities filled with superstar researchers and woefully inexperienced managers."

    Pros

    The facilities were set up well, parking, equipment, compensation and benefit packages were competitive, wasn't hard to get supplies, they were up to date on things that mattered technically.

    Cons

    After 10 years, Medimmunes best days are long gone. High morale has been replaced by frustration and fear of losing ones job. Highly producitve people were often overlooked and very frustrated while average performers who are popular and spent time selling themselves were advanced due to a very outdated evaluation system. Saving money is not rewarded and wasting money is rampant. The pay is great and fear of losing that pay is used way too often as a form of motivation. Medimmune is a company with alot of potential that cannot seem to make it all work in unison. Being loyal to the company was laughed at and considered corny and backwards. Telecommuting was abused.

    Advice to Management

    Look at every single position and the people filling those positions and do not be afraid to hire and fire with equal enthusiasm. Forget about popularity and have the super high level managers walk around unannounced to take a random snapshot, and then disseminate findings. Do not evaluate on emotion, but actual results. Fire people who do not work and waste money, and keep the people who produce and are truly loyal. Give every single person an account and have greater review of spending. Take more time in recruiting and bring back the 90 day probation period. Do not manage and motivate on fear. People are not telling thr truth on the timesheets and do not like the system.
