I have been working at Moderna Therapeutics full-time
Lots of perk and fair salaries. Lots of work as everything is in the making, so it can be stressful. But all in all it is a good place to work at.
management tends to go in too many directions, every time a new big boss is hired, there is a need to change everything to fit the vision of that new person. The point is to bring improvement and it is a right thing to do... but sometimes it seems like it is too much disruption for very little change.

Lunch is free and parking is free
Disappointed at the management and their decision process is disorganized.

The strength of Moderna is in the potential of the technology that we are working on. For the most part the people working in the lab make it easier to deal with some of the stress and pressure thrown at the research staff by upper management.
The poor planning and the changing of experiments and goals on the fly makes it extremely difficult at times to execute the proper experiments. There is also a sense of disrespect towards the research associates by upper management. The feeling is that they do not care about our personal time and our personal obligations outside of the Moderna building. This has lead to a turn style type turnover in employees. Some of the turnover was a good thing for the company as it removed some of the excess baggage; however, there also has been very skilled people who have left the company and that can not happen if Moderna is going to be succesful.
Advice to Management
It is important for management to realize that they need to respect their employees time and opinions because there are many very skilled and intelligent people in the lab that are not easily replaced. The compensation and benefits offered also need to become more competitive or people will continue to leave.
