    Pros

    Sarepta was an awesome place to intern, I was given great guidance on the work by the staff and loved the company culture. It was growing but not more than 150 at the time. The actual technology Sarepta develops is very interesting too, so I learned a lot about a PMOs, etc. Awesome place to work!

    Cons

    Not much--the company is growing so I hope the company culture stays the same.

    I have been working at Sarepta Therapeutics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people, great benefits, nice office, hard working employees, flex hours. CEO has passion. Making a difference in DMD community saving lives. Employees passionate about work. Never board.

    Cons

    Nepotism, bad management, bad communication good old boys club. Upper management is very back stabbing and sneaky. Lots of side bar meetings excluding employees. Make doing ones job very difficult and hard to succeed. To many cliches within departments. Don't trust current HR staff. Environment is not warm. High employee turnover especially women not being promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in more high level women VP's. Communicate with employees, become more transparent. Be viable take the time to get to know the worker bees. Stop the old boys club mentality, so employees trust management. Make culture warmer.
