      Pros

      Benefits are awesome. Salary is above average. Very challenging and fast paced so keeps you excited 100% of the time. Medivation provides a very generous PTO and paid holidays plus we get the week and half almost when company shuts down for Xmas and New Years. The company does a lot of employees, lots of parties, catered lunches, etc. They also provide an unlimited supply of snacks (too many to list) and beverages of all kinds. David...awesome CEO. We are also voted one of the top places to work two years in a row now.

      Cons

      The company is going through a massive growth so lots of growing pains. There is a lot of politics. CEO promotes no silos but they exist. Upper level management is sometimes very disconnected from the reality of things. HR has taken away some nice benefits otherwise it would be an even better place to work. The benefits package is shrinking as we continue to grow. We went from a company with little to no turnover to people getting fired all the time. I suppose this is why Medivation is a great place to work...your incompetence stands out very quickly amongst high level performers.

      Great Pipeline. Great Benefits and Perks. Poor and incompetent Senior Leadership.

      Pros

      Great pipeline of drugs. Free healthy snacks. Competitive salaries for higher grades positions. Easy access to public transportation. Flexible hours. Telecommute. Good benefits. Fast hiring.

      Cons

      - Poor senior leadership. Incompetent directors, senior directors and VP who are at their position not by merit but by favor or because they have been with the company for a while. You have very knowledgeable employees reporting to clueless directors and senior directors. What a waste of talent. A lot of those leaders operate in silos. No vision. No knowledge of the industry. - The incompetent ones are threatened by the highly qualified ones and push them out of the doors. - The acquisition news. The company stability will always be threatened by acquisitions. - Small company mentality fostering too much politics. - No change management. - Turnover. There are no recognition programs in place. No knowledge of talent management and retention. HR role in managing and retaining talents is non-existent. - No career development program. - Too low salaries for lower level grades. - Complete lack of communication. - Lack of skip-level communication and management. The voice of the employees is not heard.
