    Pros

    Decent holiday parties. Small pharma mentality.

    Cons

    People who are offensive or abusive should not be tolerated in any way. Alkermes rewards bad management behavior, does nothing to rid itself of the people who are self-serving and dictatorial, and promotes an uncaring disrespectful atmosphere toward its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the lowest levels of the organization. They often go unheard, and fear management retaliation.

    Pros

    Interesting pipeline and technology. Employees are generally friendly and collaborative. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    Top-down communication is poor. You're either liked and promoted or dis-liked and included in the yearly layoff. Little spent on professional growth and training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase communication and exchange of information at all levels.
