    Horrible company - run!

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great salary and low cost of benefits

    Cons

    Processes are designed for larger organizations, it stifles innovation and slows down growth/innovation. Middle managers are management only through attrition, other leaders have quit/been fired and no backfill has been done, so less savvy people are now leading teams. Many of these people have horrible management skills, and have no oversight or ability to learn and improve. Constantly walking on eggshells, unsure of when layoffs are going to happen or who is going to quit next. Direct manager actively encouraged me to not speak to my colleagues, even those on my same team. Weird dude.

    Cuts workforce by 30% for 2nd time in 3 years

    Jul 18, 2022 - Assistant Project Manager in San Diego, CA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Dedicated and committed scientists wanting to make a difference

    Cons

    Incompetent executive level management have squandered so many opportunities to develop a number of different vaccines. Board of Directors fired the CEO two months ago - new management ruthlessly just cut 20% of the workforce - not letting loose all the new employees they hired over the last two years but the long-term scientists who actually worked and achieved results.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great Benefits. That's absolutely it.

    Cons

    No support from HR. They are just a figure head. Upper management allows bullying and mistreatment by line managers. If you see not seen as a favorite to your line manager or upper management you will be isolated and ignored. If you don't kiss the ground they walk on, you will be the first one out the door. They will keep people less qualified than you based off of personal reasons. Kim is not good CEO. He pretends not to see the mistreatment that goes on and defends those right below him.

    The company doesn't get anything done

    Feb 1, 2022 - Investor Relations in Plymouth Meeting, PA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are no pros for working at this company.

    Cons

    Truthfully the CEO promises the world. He can not deliver. Kim is not very good at this leadership position. He can promise investors that things will happen in weeks when it can take months or a year. The company is not transparent and not much gets done. IR doesn't even pick up the phone anymore because we are too scared to talk to investors.
