    I have been working at Quark Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefit package (low deductible, copays). Generous leaves (vacation, sick)
    Diverse group of people and very friendly.

    Cons

    As with any smaller company which grows, there can be some growing pains at times, but management does a good job at making it run smoothly.

    Pros

    well they took most away

    Cons

    making everyone fill out time cards, even Salaried employees? taking away ability to work from home, not listening to VPs and other qualified employees on risks, or other areas of SME.

    Advice to Management

    Trust in the people you hire and pay a hefty sum to.

    I have been working at Quark Pharmaceuticals (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not many, getting worse by the day. I wish I had been warned. If you were in the military and are used to blindly following orders that do not make sense, this place is for you.

    Cons

    Well top management is clueless, and even if you know what you are doing, you often are not allowed b/c management doesn't understand what it takes to run a US business, clinical trial, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Let the people you pay good money for their years of experience and knowledge do their jobs.


  4. "Mid management"

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Quark Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hard to find any, tha place is so disorganized, no corporate culture was ever established, no communication between people if it is not connected to food issues.

    Cons

    So many, in simple terms - stay away from this place if you don't want to waste time

    Advice to Management

    None as nobody is interested in any sort of change or improvement

    I have been working at Quark Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Some bright scientists and executives. Relatively stable financially. CEO is master of negotiations.

    Cons

    Management zig-zagging all the time regarding focus and priorities. Many employees lost motivation and are just staying because it is comfortable.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more consistent company strategy.
