I worked at Ventana Medical full-time (More than 10 years)
Outstanding commercial engine. Extremely competent sales management. Culture of accountability. This company began as a start up where every employee had a vested interest in its performance and its mission (positively effect the lives of all patients afflicted with cancer). This culture created an apolitical organization that fostered teamwork and business success. This culture is fading but still exists in the commercial group.
No more homegrown talent. Roche acquisition and poor leadership at the corporate level has created massive turnover. Every single scientific fellow has departed. This has stunted the innovation engine for years to come. Lost the entrepenaurial spirit.
Advice to Management
Hiring all senior management from outside the organization builds zero trust and dilutes the culture that made Ventana great. Have faith in your people and challenge them with greater responsibility. It builds extreme loyalty.
