Working at Moderna is different work experience for better or worse

Indentured Servant (Current Employee)

I have been working at Moderna Therapeutics full-time for less than a year

ProsThe strength of Moderna is in the potential of the technology that we are working on. For the most part the people working in the lab make it easier to deal with some of the stress and pressure thrown at the research staff by upper management.

ConsThe poor planning and the changing of experiments and goals on the fly makes it extremely difficult at times to execute the proper experiments. There is also a sense of disrespect towards the research associates by upper management. The feeling is that they do not care about our personal time and our personal obligations outside of the Moderna building. This has lead to a turn style type turnover in employees. Some of the turnover was a good thing for the company as it removed some of the excess baggage; however, there also has been very skilled people who have left the company and that can not happen if Moderna is going to be succesful.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is important for management to realize that they need to respect their employees time and opinions because there are many very skilled and intelligent people in the lab that are not easily replaced. The compensation and benefits offered also need to become more competitive or people will continue to leave.

I have been working at Moderna Therapeutics full-time for less than a year


Pros: snacks and soda are provided Cons: Moderna has unrealistic expectations of time commitment for all employees. The workloads are outrageous and extremely high turnover puts more stress on already strung out… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

I don't know why anyone would want to work here

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Cambridge, MA (US)

I worked at Moderna Therapeutics full-time for less than a year


Pros: It's in a great location in Cambridge. Cons: The culture of the company is very dysfunctional and, frankly, frightening. A lot of people have been fired which management backs up using questionable,… Advice to Senior Management: The company is run by an abusive and unbelievably disrespectful management team. Drop the take-it-or-leave-it… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
