    I worked at Moderna full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people working here are some of the brightest in the world. I have no doubt that Moderna, though a young firm, will become one of the strongest research and development facilities of modern medicine in the near future.

    Cons

    Younger employees are reporting a lack of career advancement opportunities. I believe that regardless of whether or not this is true, management should address this matter directly.

    I worked at Moderna full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The stock was pumped up nicely

    Cons

    Culture is non-existence! Mid-level manager was from academic lab and knows little of industries. Most programs are useless. Leaders like to hear gossips when considering promotions. Good suggestions were shrugged off and creates a very hostile environment that needs to be addressed.

    Thanks for sharing your concerns. I am sorry to hear your experience with your direct manager wasn't great. I certainly hope you felt inclined to raise your concerns with your HR partner before you left Moderna. Our company culture is pretty special - and if a leader isn't fostering our great culture, we always want to know. We take ANY feedback around a 'hostile' work environment very seriously. Please do reach out to me at april.eldred@modernatx.com so I can learn more.
