    Toxic culture, overworked and undervalued

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Strong pipeline, week between Christmas and New Years off, rewarding work

    Cons

    To summarize: long hours, toxic culture, stifled career growth and lack of employee development. Management makes a lot of promises but never delivers. Senior leaders will promote work life balance and in the same breath say employees are expected to work weekends. All work gets put on a handful of top performers, forcing 80+ hours a week. Management takes all of the credit for any accomplishments, no recognition to employees actually doing the work. Backstabbing culture, I’ve witnessed long term employees blamed for issues that are not their fault in order for management to place the blame somewhere. HR says there is a “pay for performance” compensation model but none of their data backs it up. If you start with a low salary there will be nothing you can do to correct it, all future increases will be based on your initial salary regardless of performance.

    Commercial Revenue Finance - Hard Pass on This Department

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Productive pipeline of drugs Competitive salary and equity Very good benefits Weekly all hands meeting Did have strong CEO leadership (CEO/Founder resigned)

    Cons

    Dysfunctional, unsupportive and dishonest department. The company has looked past a revolving door of employees and reports of long standing managerial issues. Don't work for this team. Do yourself a favor, search LinkedIn for all the highly qualified people who have left the company after 12-18 months. - High turnover rate, four accountants in 4 yrs, not counting staff who transferred out of the department after 12 months - Disliked throughout the organization; consultants can’t tolerate dismissive and demeaning approach to so called "collaborating" - Blatantly hid staffing issues/shortage when asked during interview process - Suboptimal quality of work including unsupported liability balances, shoddy reconciliations and primitive reporting/analysis - Day-to-day work performed by finance people with very little accounting/revenue experience or understanding of basic accounting concepts (debit & credits, normal balances, not even prepaid accounts) - Quarterly memos provided to the auditors filled with errors and schedules that don’t foot or tie. - Inability to effectively communicate, inappropriate and unprofessional behavior, unprepared for meetings (nothing kills a meeting like watching someone prepare their Excel presentation document during the first 15 mins of a meeting) - Team building and culture is nonexistent. First and only team gathering was at Red Robin, basically a fast food restaurant! Can you put any less thought into showing your appreciation? - Fails every metric of a quality management - These people have zero emotional intelligence - Deletes inappropriate/unprofessional comments written over Teams IM

    Pros

    Culture. The company has great values and is not shy to articulate or act on them. The people are genuinely friendly, very smart and competent in their roles

    Cons

    This has not been an issue so far, but making long-term career development pathways more transparent would be appreciated.

    Pros

    Incredibly thoughtful benefits at a low cost. West Coast management philosophys are truly different than those on the East Coast.

    Cons

    Some of the sales business units have stressful cultures. They try to ensure everybody receives bonus money but they do not do a good job of rewarding very successful reps.
