    I worked at Zosano Pharma as a contractor

    Pros

    Easy job, if you enjoy playing on your cell phone all day when equipment breaks that they have no Maintenance SOPs for.

    Cons

    Bullies that forge your initials to get rid of you because of racism, terrible communication from management, documents have errors everywhere (they don't want fixed), terrible planning for downtime of manufacturing, no cross training allowed if you are eager to help, don't ask if anyone wants help, and a very unstable work environment that leads to high stress on a day to day shift.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people with degrees for jobs that don't require or use it.

    I worked at Zosano Pharma full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some Good people, just not enough to do the work needed to make tech work. R and D people know reformulation. Clinical and regulatory, new personnel are good.

    Cons

    People still trying to make 10 year old technology work. Most personnel work on what they want to do and do not want to learn new skills.

    Advice to Management

    New CEO should have been there 10 years ago and maybe the company would have a chance. became public too early

    The free soda cup of noodles and sweets to celebrate employees birthdates

    Cons

    Dog eats dog at this place! Too many of one kind that forms there own group to cover up for themselves!

    No team unity

    Advice to Management

    Needs to get a clue of what good management could bring to the table.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Zosano Pharma full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Money possibly and flexible time

    Cons

    If you plan to go there for a three hours interview, then don't waiste your time or ask them for your time pay begore getting there. They use the interview process to train their people and keep them busy as they don't have much works to do and because the company tries to keep their stock indicators as good as possible.... everything looks like a chaos and fake.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional, have real job openings; if you want to train employees how to interview people, you should respect candidates as you consume their time and their knowledge.

    Pros

    Cool technology. Team members are willing to help each other out. Good technical people with lot knowledge and experience.

    Cons

    No raises for employees in many years. Management get raises and bonuses at the same time telling technical staff to save money and cut new project budgets. Projects are started and canceled with no explanation. Poor communication from management about company future direction.

    Advice to Management

    Support employees and give them resources to be successful. Explain company future prospects with current financial situation. Recognize employees are working above and beyond for no rewards

    I worked at Zosano Pharma full-time

    Pros

    It's a small company with some innovative med technology. Lots of people who are passionate about what they're doing there.

    Cons

    Zosano has been trying to commercialize their technology for many years. With no luck. While the former CEO (Vikram Lamba) was transparent, informative, humble and kind - the new CEO (Konstantinos Alataris) not-so-much.
