good place bad mgmt
Sr. Scientist II, Analytical Research Department (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALJanuary 23, 2014
Pros: bagels every payday, free soda and coffee, great co-workers
Management has allowed certain front line supervisors to create an adversarial and nearly hostile environment.
Expectations are inconsistent and change weekly if not faster.
The workers are some of the best I've ever worked with. It's a shame they're stuck there with no options for other jobs.

Very difficult corporate environment
Executive Director, Global Product Strategy (Former Employee), San Francisco, CADecember 7, 2012
Pros: good work/life balance
Cons: mediocre to poor benefits, such as 401k match - they only match $3000. they do not match based on percentage.
Nektar is a small size biotech that has not yet successfully launched any products on it's own.

The corporate environment is one of passive-aggressive behaviors, that are tolerated and rewarded by senior management. Leadership is held by a select few people who have all worked together from a previous organization that has since been merged in with – more... another large pharma.

The most difficult part of the job was trying to interact with co-workers. These people while at VP levels did not have the knowledge or adaptability to take the company to commercialization of their organic pipeline. There were battles not only between co-workers as to who should lead projects, but between the function heads. The CEO leads by intimidation, and inappropriate outbursts at meetings. – less

Great Place to Work
Lead Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee), San Carlos, CAOctober 28, 2012
Pros: culture
Cons: company is not stable
The management made you feel strong and part of a team and trusted your input and opinion.
Definite manual labor, so if you are not ready to put your back into your work then Nektar is not the place for you.
