    I have been working at MannKind Corporation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone at MannKind is passionate about improving the lives of those with diabetes through Afrezza. The team here is sharp, approachable and dedicated to the success of the company and their peers.

    Cons

    The culture here is best suited for those open to taking on broad and evolving roles. For those who prefer a tightly structured environment, MannKind may not be the best fit.

    I have been working at MannKind Corporation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Employee benefits (health, dental, vision, 401K, stock options, etc.) flexible business hours, good company culture. Big enough to be corporate, small enough to care about their employees as individuals.

    Cons

    To be determined, if any.

    Advice to Management

    I love that they want to do/be/act better for the good of the company (and it's employees). Keep it up!

    I have been working at MannKind Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Great product, lots of good people who are passionate about what they do

    Cons

    Absolutely no accountability or professionalism. CEO talks a good game, but in reality has no idea how to lead a company and it shows. Also - any company who selects targeted employees to post positive reviews on this site (which MannKind has done) should be ashamed of themselves. This company is all about smoke and mirrors and is destined to fail.

    Advice to Management

    CEO should be replaced by someone with experience and new leader should independently evaluate entire management team

    Pros

    The culture at MannKind is fantastic. I actually look forward to coming into work! The employees are friendly, smart, and collaborative. You really feel like a part of the family. All employees get company equity, so everyone is a part owner of the company. The product is great and truly helps people, so no matter what role you are in you feel like you are doing good in the world. There are also a lot of... opportunities for career advancement and they promote from within. There also seems to be a huge potential for the company to grow. The CEO has an exciting vision for the company and now seems to be a good time to get in while the company is still somewhat small.

    Cons

    The company has a start-up feel to it, so if you like coming in to already set processes, this may not be the best fit. However, if you thrive off of being able to wear many hats and make an impact without the red tape of a larger organization, this would actually be a positive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I worked at MannKind Corporation

    Pros

    CEO and CMO are innovative, accessible, and approachable. Great novel product that’s exciting for the marketplace.

    Cons

    Rest of senior leadership is pretty canned, same old pharma. No clear picture of the future. Quarterly calls rebuffing articles that say company may go bankrupt.

    Advice to Management

    Not qualified to give management advice but I know people outside of the top 10-15 feel neglected.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, team-oriented, very approachable ELT, friendly and fun environment, a lot of different projects to work on, CEO is very passionate. Working towards something that can change the face of diabetes management and care.

    Lots to do, so constantly having to prioritize. Teams are lean and mean so things tend to get very tactical sometimes.
