    Pros

    Brilliant and approcheable CEO. Company is growing but they do a great job keeping us updated on all significant changes. Very strong, passionate and visionary leaders throughout the company.

    Cons

    Not a negative but a painful growing pain - The company is growing from small to big so as expected there is a lot of juggling keeping up with the demands of our growth while continuing to build a strong foundation in our standards and processes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Thank you for being brilliant at what you do, prioritizing keeping your employees motivated and being generous in the benefits offered.

    I have been working at Medivation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Medivation is a great place to work. The people are professional and hard working. Many have worked at a larger pharma company and have come here to find more of a home and growing/learning environment. The leadership team is very supportive and cares about their people. There are a lot of career opportunities and diversity in work that allows you to advance your career.

    Cons

    Being a small, but rapidly growing company, there are challenges with processes. Many people come from big pharma and they want to put processes in place to allow the organization to grow, so there are always pains when doing that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - hiring great, diverse talent, allowing people growth opportunities and making a difference in patient's lives!!!

    I have been working at Medivation full-time

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to listen to the lower level folks...they do the work and have a much better idea of the situation versus those in upper management. Not all Directors carry their weight. Take another look at the benefits package.
