    I worked at Medicago full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere, no competition between workers. I received a salary increase after less than a year of employment. The people in charge were friendly. Excellent benefits after working there for a year.

    Cons

    The work days were either very dull and unproductive or exhausting and frantic. There was never an in between. I couldn't help but get the feeling that the upper level management had no idea what they were doing. In the original job description I was supposed to be doing complex biotechnological skills, but instead the majority of my time there involved sitting in a chair, mopping the floors, or pushing carts.

    I worked at Medicago full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everybody is one big happy family. There are a lot of very smart, knowledgeable people there who are willing to help.

    Cons

    Management was a joke with no regard for employee career development. Lacked knowledge of field and unwilling/lacking desire to let an employee succeed. Ego driven idiots are given management positions where they ultimately flounder.

    I worked at Medicago full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Plenty of work to do for a busy ambitious professional. You also get rewarded with more work when you demonstrate competency and capacity (but that’s about all you’ll get). Growth in experience possible with the right leadership in front of you. Innovative technology which enlarges the therapeutic antigen expression landscape of Biotech manufacturing.

    Cons

    Understaffed or incorrectly staffed. Unnecessary re-work and compliance gaps resulting from past poor decision-making, poor planning/PM, poor prioritization, and rudderless political visions/shenanigans at the C-suite level. Don’t look for Senior Leadership growth experience here. First product launch is effectively a me too vaccine (albeit a different and more adaptable expression platform) but is struggling to show therapeutic attributes that are superior to existing marketed products.
