Negative Outlook

I worked at Moderna Therapeutics as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

good location..a potentially innovative technology

Cons

so many to count!
management is incompetent!
favoritism is rampant. Incompetent RAs are retained because they know nothing but back-stabbing, bad-mouthing, kissing up....and sometime hamstring management into hiring them with threat of legal lawsuit for discrimination.
scientists are just not competent...you know who you are! only two are competent, the rest are just very average but somehow they survived by sucking up to management. My advice: go back to post doc! get yourself trained.
RAs are so incompetent...very low IQs. back-stabbing and kissing up are their sport. Only 3 or so RAs there are superbly intelligent and capable, one or two are definitely better than some scientists there. These 3 or so probably have a told in increasing the over all IQ average!
management? there is no word to describe them!

Advice to Management

look for for qualified people in your company and promote them...let them voice their opinion...get rid of the CSO who is just bad in every way especially in science....let the number 2 guy there(you know who he is!) takes over...he is the brain and the voice of reason!

    - Questionable laboratory practices to increase data accumulation.
    - Experiments were conducted by personnel with dubious scientific backgrounds.
    - Lab personnel were hostile, possibly due to being overworked.

    Increase payrate in order to compensate for high expectations.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Moderna Therapeutics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. Literally none. The building is kind of nice.

    Cons

    This place is a disaster. The CEO and CSO have no respect for the employees. It was made clear from the beginning that everyone is completely replaceable, but that plan seems to have backfired as they are now hemorrhaging people, and the new people they do hire are useless. They've lost over 10 people in 10 months.

    Advice to Management

    Do yourselves and the company a favor and quit, you are clearly not compatible.
