I have been working at MannKind

Pros

flexible working schedule only due to the existing reporting structure. There is some amazing science with some very strong intellectual properties.

Cons

No work life balance, and very little respect for the scientific individuals. The mentality is very "big pharma" despite the lack of resources, and lack of personnel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is currently no incentive for individuals, and for many there is no viable professional development despite the amazing talent and potential in many.

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

    Pros

    Working at MannKind provided an opportunity to collaborate on projects at a high level with some of the most talented and dedicated people I have ever met. The relationships among coworkers were unusually strong and supportive. Taking initiative was encouraged, recognized and rewarded. Compensation and benefits were better than most start-up companies. The flexible work hours significantly increased my productivity. The Company's lead product (AFREZZA) and its underlying technology (Technosphere) have enormous medical value and market potential.

    Cons

    Company-wide communications provided important information and a sense of transparency. We believed that our ideas and recommendations were genuinely valued and taken into serious consideration. However, it seemed as though crucial decisions were made within an executive "bubble" which severely impacted operations and lead to substantial layoffs of highly valuable employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If it is not too late, try to return to the core principles which made the company a great place to work.
