  1. "Tragic, a potentially remarkable and game changing product in Afrezza, but ignorance and arrogance has tanked us."

    Pros

    Great ground level personnel, and a truly facinating potential product. Good life work balance and pay is about market.

    Cons

    Arrogant and ignorant Senior Management. The culture is also very "blame centric". In order for you to do well, someone has to do something bad. Very CYA attitudes and much backstabbing. Extreme paranoid silo mentality as well.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the Product application team that has failed twice now to gain approval for afrezza. Their arrogance and ignorance of the FDA has cost MNKD millions of dollars, years of market and the loss of literally hundreds of mostly excellent employees.


  2. "Mannkind's posted values do not reflect the actions taken by the company."

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    flexible working schedule only due to the existing reporting structure. There is some amazing science with some very strong intellectual properties.

    Cons

    No work life balance, and very little respect for the scientific individuals. The mentality is very "big pharma" despite the lack of resources, and lack of personnel.

    Advice to Management

    There is currently no incentive for individuals, and for many there is no viable professional development despite the amazing talent and potential in many.

    I have been working at MannKind full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay well for area and job description. Benefits package is slightly above average

    Cons

    Poor management. Definite disconnect between lay people and management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking care of only themselves and think about the little guy once in a while
