    I worked at MannKind (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great group of coworkers. The manufacturing process was easy to learn. Laid back environment created very little stress. For a time, company seemed to put the employee first.

    Cons

    Poor management. Executive leadership team seems to be getting the company nowhere fast, while still collecting bonuses and hourly workers don't get yearly raises.

    Advice to Management

    Need someone strong to lead and dissolve the ELT. Or at the very least, restructure. Poor decisions have plagued MKC for the last decade and prevented this great product to fail.

    Pros

    Great product, great management. It has a great manufacturing facility and they make their products in the USA with afmdvanced technologies.

    Cons

    Arrogant management, they are unaware of how to sell the product. They didn't learn from previous launch of inhaled insulin from Pfizer which is very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of the market and how to sell your product to which group of people. Work with the insurance groups and have backup plans if the strategies fail.
