    I worked at Moderna Therapeutics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers- unfortunately we did not get much time to forge relationships. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Where to begin? Overtly hostile upper management, exploitative labor practices, inane personality conflicts obliterating professionalism, absurd secrecy bordering on paranoia.

    Advice to Management

    Management has an agenda mapped out quite well and it is fairly transparent- if you're paying attention. Like all startup environments, their ultimate aim is to be purchased by a larger company, thus allowing upper management to effectively line their pockets and ride off into the sunset. They're more than willing to do this on the backs of the research associates and scientists that have built the company. Moderna...

    I have been working at Moderna Therapeutics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great Benefits and Perks, HR Team is responsive with proven leadership. Could be a great place to work but in dire need of help with living up to the core values with some current managers.

    Cons

    Communication and expectation setting deplorable. Managers in dire need of leadership training. Environment fosters negativity. Has great potential but there needs to be a solid growth plan, needs assessment and significant improvement with work life balance. Open concept seating meant for collaboration but it is proven to be a detriment not a help. Not enough thank you's for the work being done but a lot of negativity...

    Advice to Management

    Develop management training program with a defined measurement strategy to help managers manage people that includes growth plans and career paths. Develop ways to improve work life balance by allowing 10 hour 4 day work weeks in the summer months to motivate people and allow for ample time with family or providing flexible work schedules that are supported. Improve business processes that are realistic and aren't micro...
