    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.

    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

    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

    They have an excellent product and are motivated to sell it. It will be revolutionary

    I worked at MannKind full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent pay, coworkers dedicated and hard working. OK benefits, decent paid time off policy. Sends employees home when it snows.

    Cons

    -Layoffs very often and unstable.
    -Management very lackadaisical or so it would appear to employees because of the lack of communication.
    -HR leaves a lot open to managers discretion, which is ok if you work for a professional manager who values your work, experience and knowledge.
    -Overall I liked working there unfortunately I lost in the lottery with who I worked for, and that was pretty much known throughout the company as I was told by many employees and managers, a bad experience but not a reflection on the company overall.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees informed on company matters and communicate more often. Recognize the cancer you still have there taking advantage of the company on a daily basis.

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

    Pros

    There are many talented, dedicated people working there. Relationships among coworkers are strong. Compensation and benefits are above many similar companies. The lead product is very innovative and will provide a tremendous positive benefit to many people.

    Cons

    There are areas of poor leadership and the atmosphere is at times very stressful. As the future of the company is not known, morale is low among most of the staff.

    Advice to Management

    It would be beneficial to have more frequent interactions with all of the staff and to discuss the future possibilities at the company more openly.

    Pros

    The Company has some very hard working dedicated people trying to get a job done, that are willing to go the extra mile and help out where they con.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional, turf wars, ego driven senior management. No communication from Sr Management with clear direction. HR department that is useless.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that are actually doing the job – and not the “yes” people.

    Pros

    Dedicated people on the ground floor.

    Cons

    Upper management politics could be a real time-waster and counterproductive to the mission of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Sr. Management - seek out the opinions of employees on the ground floor on a continuous basis. They often have good insight on the operational realities mid-level Directors may shield from you.
