    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Nothing much. No rewards. No growth.

    Cons

    No rewards. No growth. Promotions are offered to employees who have good relations with the management.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of the show up with vegas party and all, the company should pay good for the employees for all the work

    I have been working at Spectrum Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The expense reporting recently was improved and now paid within a week.

    If you don't like senior management wait about 12 months. The CEO will put a new regime in to fix the declining product sales.

    Cons

    CEO way too involved and very shrewd when it comes to giving any stock RSU/options or salary increases. CEO also couldn't tell you anything about how to sell the products company has. CEO likes to buy bottom feeder drugs no other company wants.

    They have no clue in how to sell and launch orphan drugs.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company for a tax inversion from the foreign country tax designations.
    Please don't follow me to my new oncology company and screw that one up as well.

    I worked at Spectrum Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Excellent Salary and Benefits, very talented staff (other than management).

    Cons

    Huge turnover and most people are forced to do the work of multiple people and skill sets. The CEO and most of the Senior Management are evil.

    Advice to Management

    This isn't India.

    I worked at Spectrum Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In general, a lot of hard working people who believe in helping bring new cancer therapies to market. A few under-rated excellent drugs that could really help people if managed properly. You can get a decent salary of you know the right people, or

    Cons

    Micromanaged, tyrannical leadership style. Nepotism, sexism, and cronyism is flaunted. Constantly focusing only on cash position - trying to squeeze employees to give more, while giving them less in return. Even when rolling out "New & improved" benefits, they find ways to cut corners to the detriment of naïve employees while lining the pockets of senior execs and board of directors. Worst of all, product selection has moved away from the mission of "unmet medical needs" and instead is all about "me too" products to try to earn a quick profit. Once I had a peak behind the curtain, I quickly found a more deserving company to devote my efforts and expertise.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a conscious & spread the wealth. It's only a matter of time before your lawyers can't get you out of one of the many deserved lawsuits.

    Pros

    Some fun people, and you get a regular paycheck

    Cons

    CEO often tells staff they are replaceable (except of course himself). Management only cares about stock price, and tries to convince employees stock price will change dramatically. People who put the company before themselves and their family are rewarded and praised. Culture is toxic and does not support people who work hard. Many people show up and do no work, while others are blamed for not working hard enough.

    Advice to Management

    CEO needs to leave. Upper Management needs to think about their employees as people. Stop talking about the stock price, it doesn't convince employees of anything, nor does it motivate us to work harder.

    Pros

    They have some nice little products. Few good minds were there but they must be all gone by now. Except these I could see nothing positive.

    Cons

    High NEPOTISM, Toxic environment, Low IQ Vice Presidents, High Micromanagement, Low Pay, Extreme Politics, Employees are never heard.

    Anyone working here for more than an year finds it difficult to get a job outside. It took me 3 months of convincing to my new employer. if you dont trust me then do your homework and Google it all.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your people. Pay them all dues & respect your people. Stop throwing out your old employees for cheap ones. Tell the truth upfront and stop lying all the time.
