    I have been working at Nektar Therapeutics full-time

    Pros

    Good Pay and benefits and thats about it

    Cons

    High Stress environment. Top heavy management, really top heavy. SF office has ego issues. India and the Huntsville offices are the red headed step child. Human Resources is only there to protect Nektar from law suits and not there for the employees. It’s time for new management, Howard has lost the trust of the employees. If you are going to work there, make sure it’s the SF office.

    Pros

    Senior management in the R&D side of the company is fantastic - they manage project priorities very efficiently and communicate that information to employees well. Managers are great about setting time aside for one-on-ones with employees that report to them. Lower-level lab employees can often interact with VPs during weekly update/planning meetings. Laboratories are always well stocked and raw materials are rarely, if ever, in short supply. Breakfast and lunch are subsidized by the company and are both very good deals. It is less than $2 for a bunch of different breakfast options and $5 for a variety of lunch options (that change every day).

    Cons

    Very few cons of working at Nektar, there are some differences in the benefits allotted to contractors and the benefits given to FTEs.
