    I worked at ImmunoGen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Positive, supportive, and upbeat culture. People genuinely listen to each other, are kind, and enjoy each others company and ideas. Tight knit community, great fluidity between titles, functions, tenures.

    Cons

    Some poor strategic decisions were made in the past which brought the company to where it is now- but live and learn, and this is part of the industry.

    I worked at ImmunoGen full-time

    Pros

    Interesting projects and programs. Joyful working environment and great benefits, but not no more.

    Cons

    There was a great attempt to move the company forward, but the immature upper management that had too much ego and greed couldn't make it happen. There was favoritism replacing the science. The remaining people are people who made the bad decisions for the Phase III trial.

    I worked at ImmunoGen full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    None left, where there used to be so much

    Cons

    The company was recently gutted by a deep 220-person layoff. The amazing talent pool is now gone. Greed, reckless speed and stupid choices by senior executives killed the company.

    I have been working at ImmunoGen full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Over the last 3 years we’ve had ups and downs; with interesting science and clinical programs, re-alignment of corporate priorities, new executives, loss of some good people and 2 lay-offs. Some of these reviews are a bit one sided; and while I’ll acknowledge some growing pains throughout the organization you’d have be completely naïve to think that ImmunoGen is an anomaly in this space. Any other company goes through the same issues with growth and maturity. Some of the policy changes mentioned in other reviews on here with regard to HR are actually positive; it’s just the first time this company has actually done anything worthwhile around performance and recognition. Every company I’ve worked at has done a “calibration” exercise where managers compare performance of their employees to ensure compensation and promotions are deserved and equitable. There was no challenge over ratings unless the employee was seemingly fantastic in their managers eyes but everyone that’s worked with them thought differently. High performing employees are differentiated and given more opportunity.

    Cons

    There is a small percentage of negativity and level of professional immaturity and understanding of how to run a business in pockets of the organization – not understanding why we need to hire directors, why grow out certain functions, why these policy changes, why corporate branding. The decisions to bring in more experienced individuals to fill in competency gaps across the organization in areas where we haven’t operated before (essentially outside of R&D) is smart – not everyone at ImmunoGen can just laterally fill our vacancies.
