    I worked at MannKind full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are many talented, dedicated people working there. Relationships among coworkers are strong. Compensation and benefits are above many similar companies. The lead product is very innovative and will provide a tremendous positive benefit to many people.

    Cons

    There are areas of poor leadership and the atmosphere is at times very stressful. As the future of the company is not known, morale is low among most of the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be beneficial to have more frequent interactions with all of the staff and to discuss the future possibilities at the company more openly.

    Pros

    The Company has some very hard working dedicated people trying to get a job done, that are willing to go the extra mile and help out where they con.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional, turf wars, ego driven senior management. No communication from Sr Management with clear direction. HR department that is useless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people that are actually doing the job – and not the “yes” people.

    Pros

    Dedicated people on the ground floor.

    Cons

    Upper management politics could be a real time-waster and counterproductive to the mission of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sr. Management - seek out the opinions of employees on the ground floor on a continuous basis. They often have good insight on the operational realities mid-level Directors may shield from you.

    I worked at MannKind

    Pros

    There is opportunity for a starting engineer to wear many hats within a startup company but until the uncertainty of the company is resolved it’s a rocky place to work. Since it’s such a small company any employee can make an impact in one shape or another.

    Cons

    Company has had many layoffs for such a small company. Senior management to employee ratio is much too high resulting in power struggles within departments and competing goals that results in micromanagement from the executive level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off your high horse and put on your working boots to look at really what is going on in the front lines. Stop setting the bar too high for the company and make smart decisions that make good business sense.

    The majority of the people working there are great. A lot of talent.
