What is the retirement plan like at IPSEN?

Pros

401k matching is best I have seen

Cons

Experienced people tasked with doing a job that requires a team, without a team. Demand on personal time is overwhelming. Hard to take vacations. Emails (and texts) all hours of the night. I should NOT be that important! Bad health insurance options for a pharma/biotech. Go figure!

Advice to Management

Your middle-leadership are yes-men protecting themselves and too afraid to tell a narcissistic president they don't know what they are doing. Get out of the way or grab a sack. Don't push impossible crap down. Staff appropriately, reduce the middle layers.

Does IPSEN assist with or provide work transportation?

Pros

I've been here 3 months with over 20 years in the Pharma industry. The Onboarding & Training experience has been excellent. Ipsen continues to impress with salary, benefits, company car, technology, etc. They have also shown how much care for their employees during the COVID-19 crisis. I am extremely happy with my decision to change companies.

Cons

Haven't come across any yet.

Advice to Management

Continue to listen to employees and allow suggestions/improvements to move from the bottom up to the top.

What are some insights into the strategy or vision at IPSEN?

Pros

Joined within the last 6 months and love the culture here. Everyone is very welcoming and open to new ideas. There has been a lot of change over the past few years and people are aligned with the mission and vision of the North American CEO. The clearest strategy I have seen in many years and a direct path to accomplish the corporate mission and vision.

Cons

Not many. Not a lot of process but people are willing to look at new ways of doing things aligning with the corporate vision.

Advice to Management

Keep bringing in top talent!
