    Best Company I've Worked For

    Pros

    Medivation had a great vision and treated its employees superbly. There were many opportunities for advancement and to move into other areas of interest.

    Cons

    Some managers were big on micro-management. Early research initiatives were often very secretive.

    Pros

    Medivation appeared to be incredibly progressive from the outside looking in.

    Cons

    I recall they would fire people on April fools day.

    Pros

    Was at Medivation for less than a year and now it's Pfizer, but what a wonderful and talented staff. Loved the smarts blended with a wonderful sense of fun, camaraderie and kindness.

    Cons

    When a big company buys a small one, so of the team and family-oriented culture is lost.

    Great place to work!!!

    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.

    Great company going though lots of changes/growing pains

    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.

    Explosive growth potential, but disorganized at the top.

    Pros

    Medivation, in its brief history has seen impressive growth. In attempting to support this type of growth, Medivation has done a lot to try and attract the top talent. The benefits package is pretty nice for a small biotech, but nothing compared to the dot coms and IPO darlings of Silicon Valley.

    Cons

    With explosive growth, there are growing pains. Medivation's leadership has seemed in the past disjointed and counter-productive. There is seemingly a lot of miscommunication at the VP level and that get filtered down through the different groups.

    Pros

    The culture at Medivation is satisfying.

    Cons

    The cons at Medivation are the politics, although this is normal for all companies.
