      Good has morphed into toxic culture

      Pros

      Worked with some great, experienced colleagues who cared about the company's mission and one another. The problem is they became too far and few between.

      Cons

      Changes in senior leadership over the past few years had led to a toxic and backstabbing culture. There is a lack of accountability and a feeling that you always need to watch your back because there is always someone trying to make you look bad for any and all mistakes, no matter how small. Micromanagement is rampant and the culture has developed into one where things need to be done yesterday. Management has no rhyme or reason for expediting every project, there is no sense of prioritization, and employees are getting burned out due to lack of resources. Management constantly tells employees not to pay attention to the stock price while honing in on the stock price at every company meeting.

      Science-driven company developing a burnout culture

      Apr 12, 2021 - Anonymous Employee 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Strong pipeline, values science, and tries earnestly to live up to tagline of “passion for patients”... smart, driven workforce, and interesting work.

      Cons

      Unrealistic expectations and senior leadership not attuned to how the rest of the company is doing. Seemed to be concerned with growth, stock price but less to the employees who make that growth happen. Lack of decision making clarity and empowerment. Hoarding of decisions to highest levels, even for mundane decisions. Career advancement is largely nonexistent.

      Rapid growth, changing culture

      Mar 23, 2021 - Director in Bothell, WA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Solid company with a long-term focus on building a strong oncology pipeline. Employee experiences will vary a lot based on what department they are in. At the corporate level the company does a good job of supporting its employees and providing a competitive package of compensation and benefits, but there is a lot of variability across departments in terms of professionalism, culture, and quality management.

      Cons

      Company is struggling a bit to retain its 'small biotech' culture in the face of a growing product portfolio and aggressive investment in its pipeline. A few long-term employees (lifers?) in the management structure seem to get a free pass for not growing their own abilities alongside the growth of the company--creates an appearance of complacency. Founder-CEO has no doubt been successful building this company, but can be volatile and doesn't always follow through on statements made to employees.
