I have been working at Rigel Pharmaceuticals full-time

Pros

This company cares about their employees by providing good benefits, weekly socials, and a semi-friendly working environment. In return the employees often work long hours and take pride in their work. They have retained the "small company" feel and many employees have been there for 10+ years so it feels a little like a family- that, to me, is a sign of a good work environment.

Cons

They do not support career development - such as funding conference attendance and they do not provide training - it's sink or swim and that is entirely up to you. The higher ranking employees have an exclusivity air about them - as in they stick with their own kind - but that's probably true for most executive level people.

Advice to Management

Provide team building exercises, encourage and fund career development activities such as conferences (for the "lower employees" not talking about the executive.)

    I worked at Rigel Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Early on, the company had a reputation of honoring good science and treating scientist well
    Management maintained a relative transparent governance policy
    Decision making is relatively less bureaucratic

    Cons

    Over the years, the company has lost a focus on good science
    Favoritism has been played in key groups
    The company, though young, seems to lost its vigor of innovation and discovery

    Advice to Management

    Maintain focus on science and productivity

    Pros

    Great learning environment. Friendly people to work with. Great atmosphere to work in. Would work with the people again if given the chance. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Low funding, starting to lean more toward commercialization. Less focused on research. Not the ideal place for research and development.

    Advice to Management

    None I can really think of. Everything seemed to be going well except the recent big cut of work force but I guess that was needed to maintain progress toward commercial of the main candidate.
