    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    I worked in both the biochemistry and the pharmacology department on numerous projects, two of which produced medicines that are now on the market (Vibativ and for COPD). The company had good benefits and quality management. I worked with talented and genuinely nice people, many of which remain close friends of mine.

    Cons

    As the company has grown some of that "startup feel" is gone. This is understandable as the company transitioned from one which was focused on target discovery to one that must develop lead molecules. Fortunately despite some changing of the guard the overall environment remained quite fun and rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster an environment which allows people to develop, learn and progress their careers. Many employees have remained for long periods of time or even returned after acquiring additional academic credentials. I believe this is an overall positive for employee morale and continued success!

    "Friendly, engaging coworkers with young energetic spirit that is slowly morphing into a bureaucratic mess"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Easy to approach anyone of any level and talk to them
    Company is strong on fit and generally tries to get people who are looking for more than just clocking in and out
    Fantastic brain trust in research
    Good work-life balance for the most part

    Cons

    Hours can be inflexible during certain projects
    Promotion and career advancement support is sometimes spotty
    Senior management often cuts from the bottom before hitting the fat in the middle

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time trying to develop talent from within rather than firing and hiring from the outside
    A lot of recent layoffs have involved gutting a whole department and then rebuilding it, often causing friction
