A lot of pointing fingers rather than collaboration. This makes people not want to work together.

There are a lot of politics. A lot of unprofessional arguments.


Quality and compliance concerns.


Questionable decisions are often made. Beware.
Cons
unprofessional, lack of team work

The management is very poor at Exelixis. They cross the line often when it comes to Pharma Guidelines. Medical Affairs and sales work very closely together. Medical Affairs takes direction from sales. A lot of travel involved. Not organized in terms of management or objectives. No objectives stated.
Pros
money
Cons
management and ethics are poor

It is a good company, but lacks a long-term strategic plan, no control of spending money. CEO make mistakes for crucial decisions, and the BOD does not do the job as it supposed to do.

I spent the first 7 years of my career at Exelixis. It was a great place to learn and grow as a professional. People work hard but also have a good work/life balance. I wish the company nothing but success in the future.

Great group of people to work with. All team players and committted to the cause. Unfortunate results of phase 3 trial for prostate cancer indication is causing huge layoff.

Very quite typical day of data entry of accounts payables. I learned accounting system of Solomon. The first time I used Outlook. The management is I think one of the nicest I have so far encountered because the Managers are very considerate. I have encountered some of the very helpful co-workers. The hardest but challenging part was when I was trained as a new employee. The most enjoyable part was the printing of payable checks or check run, the photo-copying, and mailing.
Pros
Free lunches, snacks. Good rapport among employees. Weekly pay.
Cons
Healthcare cost is somewhat higher.
