    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...

    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...

    Advice to Management

    The few employees who write an overly negative and ridiculous review because they’re having a hard time adapting to change or improvement -- being performance managed for the first time or can’t understand why we’re bringing in experienced employees to fill competency gaps in the organization -- don’t warrant response. Training people to be managers and offering professional development opportunities and rewarding/recognizing...

    I have been working at ImmunoGen full-time

    Pros

    Immunogen is the first place I have worked where I feel valued. There are a lot of opportunities to do cool science and a solid benefits package. Everyone cares about their work and everyone is friendly.

    Cons

    Clearly some managers are better than others.

    Advice to Management

    In the departments where people are unhappy with their managers the perks and fun company events are going to be seen as ignoring their larger problem.

    Pros

    Great healthcare. Flexible Work/Life Balance. Friendly work environment. Very caring people with good values. From my past job experience, ImmunoGen is a company that values the opinion of all employees despite their educational level. (My prior careers denied scientific contribution by non-PhD employees) Employees of all levels are also invited to science seminars and are informed of the company's progress through...

    Cons

    At times it may seem as preferred departments have more favoritism. Employees need to appreciate everyone's contributions. Communication needs improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all departments equally and listen to their concerns/needs.

    Pros

    I joined ImmunoGen about six months ago and feel so fortunate each time I walk in the door to work. The culture is amazing, but most of all the people I am working with are super smart and it feels like a big family. The company provides a wonderful work-life balance, and management is very supportive of individual goals. The benefits are absolutely amazing - cost is 100% paid by the company. They also provide other...

    Pros

    Great health insurance Good science CEO listens

    Cons

    Management is forcing people to write positive reviews. Notice how all the good reviews are in a couple days but the real ones spread out over the last year? HR is terrible but continues to be rewarded. Only promotions are upper management in HR. They want to be a top rated company, but do not want to change anything and just get angry at people for not agreeing that everything is perfect while it is really awful....

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all of your HR and try to use some of the great ideas that the real top places to work have. Don't take surveys and never release the results like you did last year.
