Ron is a great guy and a strong leader. He needs to keep focused on moving drug candidates forward and earn FDA approval

    Pros

    fast paced, start-up like company though it exists more than 10 years. It has a lot of smart guys there, you can learn a lot of new things

    Cons

    the business has not prove itselfe yet. It just lay off half of its employees. I guess a lot of co-workers had lost a big chunk of their savings... the work place is not flexible enough.

    Advice to Management

    could create more work-life balance environment to employees. overall I think they did a good job so far. No body can control test result... it's not your fault the tests failed.


  2. "Great culture but unfortune future"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It is a very friendly working environment. Shared work and communication among different groups are good. Free soda. Used to offer free lunch.

    Cons

    Spending too much money on departments that didn't generate revenue, instead but just burning cash. Unfortunately leading drug did not get approved.

    Advice to Management

    none. Nothing to say as it just laid off 50% employee, including entire research people who laid eggs for the company.
