"Everything about this company is dirgraceful"


"You absolutely need the time off to recover. Lack of cohesive function among team members. Highly dysfunctional company. Extremely poor internal communications. A lot of smoke and mirrors being used by certain departments to deceive others. Inconsistent, and unjustified standards applied towards employee and project management. Cowardace is rewarded at this company."

"Optimer was a start up biotech company that launch a new therapy in infectious disease market. They partnered with Cubist for the launch of Dificid.

One needed to know the art of disagreeing while still acting like a supportive team player. It was very much a "trial by fire" type of environment. Learn fast, and contribute quickly and often. While this was stressful for some, if you could show you could handle it, you acquired some great skills. I was actually quite proud to be one of the people who came out the other side of my own trial successfully. The best people at my job, whom I learned the most from, were those who did not engage in drama. There was plenty drama at my company (although from what I hear, that is typical in small, fast growing businesses.) But these people worked hard and did not stress out over set backs. They were creative problem solvers like myself and just got to work on the next task.
