    I worked at InterMune full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In general, the people and benefits are very good. The product is approved for Europe, but not US...yet, and meets specific needs of those with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). Currently, there is no other approved product or treatment to help these people.

    Cons

    Information sharing and communications could be better with the departments that are affected. Too often, it seemed like there was scrambling to meet deadlines that did not take into account all the necessary work involved.
    Some of the perks that helped maintain employee morale have been cut back or eliminated.

    Pros

    Great range of people (it takes all kinds)
    After a regulatory glitch a few years back, new mgmt was brought in and almost everyone with bad habits was flushed out
    Mgmt has a knack for picking people they know will work well in their groups
    Great morale programs (recognition, feedback, events, outings)
    Great benefits & options (even pet health insurance if you want to shell out for it)
    Nice enough location: close to the city, but don't have to hassle with parking issues; overlooks a hill where horses roam, as well as the bay
    On-site shower
    Free breakfast cereal, frozen yogurt, subsidized vending machines, not afraid of drinking at social events

    Cons

    It's biotech, i.e. tensions can run high when everyone knows their jobs could be cut
    Gossip can run a bit amok
    Not a lot of lunch options around the area

    Advice to Management

    Remind people that you can only give negative comments about your co-workers to someone above you - otherwise it's gossip

    Like all jobs there are risks. I wished Intermune had a better pipeline and a very profitable balance sheet.

    Get the product to market.

    Pros

    Great Team and growth, great benefits and perks! Friendly start up atmosphere with a put together vibe. Great place to work

    Cons

    Management needs restructuring and more development. Too many managers who do not know how to manage a team of people. Not enough team members, only manage titles.

    Advice to Management

    Put in a review process to get managers managing their teams to help grow people and the business. More team building activities would be useful
