    Pros

    Wonderful colleagues. They will help guide you if this is your first time in Pharma. Good work life balance. Excellent all around.

    Cons

    None. This was the best experience I have had. You learn all aspects of biotech. The only con is you don't have a huge supportive staff. But if you like to wear all hats, this is the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    This is the perfect job to introduce you to Pharma. Or if you've had a lot of expertise, there's a lot of opportunities.

    I worked at Sangart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Atmosphere, positive colleagues and peers to work with. Company gave many work functions to promote company chemistry.

    Cons

    Company was finding backdoor policy violations that were not clear defined to eliminate staff from mismanaged executive spending. In the end it was ugly and people were loosing their jobs without any wrongdoing.

    Advice to Management

    No advice needed. Company has dissolved.

    I worked at Sangart full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The product was invented with great science and could have shot if it was not for the bad leadership and management.

    Cons

    The company went down hill ever since the former CEO Robert Winslow got replaced by Brian O'callaghan. Because of the bad management and hiring ever since, countless layoffs started happening from 2009. The senior managers kept sucking the funding from one private investor until the end. The company finally was shutdown in 2013.
    Everything happened was kept secret internally and to the public. There was no transparency and the culture was horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop posting great reviews to your own.

    Pros

    Cutting edge science with some excellent scientists doing work in areas of serious unmet medical need. Nice facilities and lovely climate! Company spends on training for it's employees.

    Cons

    As with all biotech start ups the major uncertainty always turns on ongoing funding and the need to procure it in order to keep the company going. Experience to date has been positive. If you join this company you had better know what you are doing, the small scale means that there's not many resources available for mentoring within the company

    Advice to Management

    Communicate communicate communicate.
