    I worked at MannKind full-time for 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.

    I worked at MannKind

    Pros

    Colleagues are friendly, nice and pleasant. Studies are interesting and focused on both type 1 and 2 diabetes.

    Cons

    Upper level management is not focused; layoffs are common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparant to your employees about the direction of the future of the company.
