    I have been working at Hemispherx Biopharma full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    As a Manager at Hemispherx Biopharma, I take all online comments seriously and believe it is my responsibility to do everything I can to make our work environment the best it can possibly be. However, this exact quote has been used on another online comment site and attributed to a person who has never worked for Hemispherx, so I have to question the basis and reasons for this comment. But to clarify for others who are...

    Cons

    Under previous management, I probably will not have posted any positives. I am grateful I stayed with company and I am here to see it turn a new leaf. Please stay away if you are not looking for a place to grow and be challenged.

    I worked at Hemispherx Biopharma for less than a year

    Pros

    Cant think of any real benefits.

    Cons

    This company takes micromanaging to a whole new level. Everything is monitored and you will always be watched. There is minimal work in the company as the product is yet to get FDA approval and a daily challenge to pass a whole day without going out of ones mind with boredom. Some people in management have no business being there as promotions as based on favoritism not qualification. Rest of us are obligated to suck...

    Advice to Management

    Please show some professionalism, respect and give people notice prior to firing them or atleast the decency to tell them to their face! Also some breathing space if you want real talent to stay.

    I worked at Hemispherx Biopharma for less than a year

    Pros

    Better than being unemployed, good resume builder for pursing better pharma employment

    Cons

    Management and leadership is unorganized, inefficient, and largely apathetic until they are threatened, at which point they scapegoat a subordinate. Management also consistently employ their own family members even though they have no relevant experience. The company would consistently hire people with little to no background in pharmaceuticals or science and because of their lack of experience production of product...

    Advice to Management

    Management show little to no drive to actually create a functional company. In my own personal opinion I would remove all current management from their positions so they can be replaced with competent staff.

    I worked at Hemispherx Biopharma for less than a year

    Pros

    There really are no pros to this company. Everyone in charge at this company does not respect the people that work for them.

    Cons

    Everyone who works there is a contractor, and are therefore treated horribly and are heavily expendable. I was fired three months after being hired due to cutbacks. My coworker was fired three weeks after starting. I was hired as a technical writer but was given nothing but administrative work to do, as well as maitenance work, including cleaning offices and chemical inventory.

    Advice to Management

    Show some respect for the working people in your company who allow you to gain profits.

    Advice to Management

    I was emailed a letter stating that I have been selected for a Job opportunity at the New Brunswick location. After receiving the letter of acceptance I stated on my interviewer as well as to the HR manager who hired me that I would not be able to join immediately since I was working at the time. The company I was working for required to give at least 2 week notice before I could quit. At both instances I was told that...
