    Be more transparant to your employees about the direction of the future of the company.

    I worked at MannKind full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at MannKind provided an opportunity to collaborate on projects at a high level with some of the most talented and dedicated people I have ever met. The relationships among coworkers were unusually strong and supportive. Taking initiative was encouraged, recognized and rewarded. Compensation and benefits were better than most start-up companies. The flexible work hours significantly increased my productivity. The Company's lead product (AFREZZA) and its underlying technology (Technosphere) have enormous medical value and market potential.

    Cons

    Company-wide communications provided important information and a sense of transparency. We believed that our ideas and recommendations were genuinely valued and taken into serious consideration. However, it seemed as though crucial decisions were made within an executive "bubble" which severely impacted operations and lead to substantial layoffs of highly valuable employees.

    Advice to Management

    If it is not too late, try to return to the core principles which made the company a great place to work.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Really smart people. Salary and benefits were very good.

    Cons

    Downside was its location and the lack of cash to keep the human resources employed. Also, the partnership to sell the company's first inhaled insulin product was a bad decision.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone in management who knows how to take a new product over the finish line and who knows how to make deals that are beneficial to the stockholders.

    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.
