    I have been working at Moderna Therapeutics full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great facility. Free food but its a trap for lunch meetings and no break. 90% medical/dental coverage, standard (3%) 401k coverage.

    Cons

    Company is headed in the wrong direction lately. Worst Senior Directors in QA, leading to unrealistic timelines. No technical knowledge and no understanding of true GMP. 50-60 hrs week is very normal, and no work-life balance. Late night emails to show their ongoing progress. Speed is the excuse for everything. Quality is the biggest team onsite and they make all decisions, without any technical knowledge. Hiring...

    Start 360 reviews with employees. Promote good culture of work-life balance, rather than rushing and failing multiple times.

      Thanks for sharing your experience so far at Moderna. We agree, our pace is fast, and we aren't for everyone....but we are right for those that are truly relentless about delivering on the promise of mRNA for patients. We are so glad you are here!

      I worked at Moderna Therapeutics full-time

      Pros

      Free lunch/phone/benefits were the only pros

      Cons

      -A lot of downsides. Management doesn't care about anyone except the company and their business. Usually, ineffective managers replace a lot of good quality effective ones due to which the morale of the work environment is brought down. Was a good place to work until CSO Joe Bolen left and current ineffective management replaced him. -No one cares about the individual's career growth. There is a huge gap between...

      Very hierarchical, micromanagement and everyone thinks about themselves and their own growth. I have seen lot of favoritism and promotions are biased

      Pros

      The benefits are good, but they are getting the most important things wrong.

      Cons

      Unfortunately, Moderna is not a great place to work for many people. The root cause is top-down arrogance that dominates the organization. Top scientists, directors, and executives have departed at an alarming rate. The loss of quality leaders has left key positions filled by ineffective managers. The turning point occurred around the time veteran CSO Joe Bolen departed to be replaced by the current junior leadership....
