    I worked at MannKind full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at MannKind provided an opportunity to collaborate on projects at a high level with some of the most talented and dedicated people I have ever met. The relationships among coworkers were unusually strong and supportive. Taking initiative was encouraged, recognized and rewarded. Compensation and benefits were better than most start-up companies. The flexible work hours significantly increased my productivity. The Company's lead product (AFREZZA) and its underlying technology (Technosphere) have enormous medical value and market potential.

    Cons

    Company-wide communications provided important information and a sense of transparency. We believed that our ideas and recommendations were genuinely valued and taken into serious consideration. However, it seemed as though crucial decisions were made within an executive "bubble" which severely impacted operations and lead to substantial layoffs of highly valuable employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If it is not too late, try to return to the core principles which made the company a great place to work.

    Pros

    Many talented, hard working people. Interesting product. Tremendous CEO.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, mismanagement. People who worked incredibly hard and were very dedicated to the company were fired, while people who were not invested in the company were promoted. It seemed like the management team really wanted the staff to not be looking too closely at what was going on.
