    I have been working at Omeros

    Pros

    The teams are great. Very open and friendly environment and an exciting pipeline.

    Cons

    The CEO has to sign off on everything that VP’s should have ownership on. This delays things getting done and difficult to meet deadlines. Departments don’t collaborate well, so many employees are left in the dark. The company isn’t open to change or new ideas; very stagnant culture where voices aren’t heard. Employees don’t feel valued, especially since there hasn’t been HR leadership in a year. Meanwhile there are 13 VP’s in a 250 person company. Top heavy, but employee development and growth are nonexistent. Additionally, amidst the COVID-19 outbreak where headquarters are (Seattle), leadership has not encouraged employees who can work from home to do so; putting employees and their families at risk. This sends the message the company does not care about its employees health and well-being. I’m very disappointed by this blatant lack of awareness.

    I have been working at Omeros full-time

    Pros

    - pay is decent - Health insurance is good - Impressive pipeline (if it can be properly managed)

    Cons

    - upper management takes zero responsibility for any negative outcomes - There are deliberate attempts to skirt laws and regulations - Company processes are outdated and haphazard at best - Communication from upper management is inconsistent and often nonexistent - Company does not have a clear direction they want to move in, so employees are constantly chasing a moving target - Upper management does not seem to understand what their employees actually do - Upper management will push employees they don’t like off projects - There have been multiple incidents of egregious disrespect towards employees from upper management with that have all been swept under the rug - Only “yes” people have opportunities for advancement, even when guarantees are made that are impossible to follow through with - Company sacrifices integrity if it means bumping up the stock price

    Being downtown Seattle without the hassle of being downtown Great group of people who are respectful, thoughtful and understanding Lots of growth and opportunity for advancement Using cutting edge technology Competitive salary Great benefits! Willing to invest in personnel and provide training Very flexible with work hours when it comes to needing time off Awesome view of the Puget Sound and Olympic mountain range Although I haven't used it yet, there is a access to full gym with amazing view of waterfront

    Cons

    Awkward time, due to fast growth with complicated seating options Parking is a bit of a challenge, if your not paying for parking. Not so many dining options so be ready to make creative decisions when it comes time to eat.

    I have been working at Omeros full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are so many exciting programs and really smart people that work here. The company is growing and is thoughtful and intentional with its decisions. Management understands work life balance and allows creative schedules. Benefits and compensation is competitive.

    Cons

    Some employees complain that that thoughtfulness might take some time to make decisions, but at least the decisions are on target.
