      I have been working at Acceleron Pharma full-time (More than 8 years)

      Pros

      Acceleron is very unique place. All team members are willing to give extra to get the job done as appropriate in reaching our company goals. I truly feel great about the way we contribute to our patients and our community. I love the fact that I always have open accessibility to upper management, including VPs., CEO, CFO, CMO, CSO etc.. They have always welcomed questions, advice I was looking for, personally and professionally. They are very honest and ethical in its business practices! Acceleron is growing company and with it comes great opportunity for professional development and growth! I love working for Acceleron because they care about all of us! Acceleron has helped me achieve my vision goal of becoming a leader by provide me with great resources and mentors. Everyone here is willing to help and share knowledge which allows you to grow as a person. Acceleron has become my second family and I truly would not want to be anywhere else!

      Cons

      None that I can point out.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to do what you are doing!!!

      I have been working at Acceleron Pharma full-time (More than 5 years)

      Pros

      Friendly, nice coworkers. Pay is decent. Free parking.

      Cons

      Unclear and uncertain long term outlook for job security. Pipeline is all over the place. Will Celgene buy us or will we stay independent? Overall benefits package not competitive with the rest of the industry.

      Advice to Management

      Company operates with a mentality of the founding days of the company. Definitely time to move the old management regime out and bring in fresh blood. Anyone in a management position should be asked for 365 feedback, I have yet to see this being done and there are some people who really should not be leading others simply because they've either been with Acceleron for years or because they have a lot of experience...those aren't the only qualifications for being a leader! As another review has stated, watching the decision making process by those either at the Executive level or one step down sometimes makes me cringe, they don't make clear and crisp decisions and sometimes when decisions are made they aren't clearly or broadly communicated among departments or the company. Sometimes decisions that are made are not realistic (with regards to timelines) setting entire departments or individuals up to fail or without the proper resources to execute.
