As we build Avanir, we all have the exciting opportunity to contribute to the shaping of the company culture. Since being introduced to Avanir, I have had the opportunity to work with so many great people in many different functional areas across the organization. And though we work in a highly-regulated industry, there is an entrepreneurial spirit that starts at the top and runs throughout the Company encouraging each one of us to “own” our part of the business and ask ourselves each day: “What am I doing today to help patients suffering from PBA?” I value that sense of ownership and responsibility as it serves as a motivator and makes it exciting to come to work each day. We share an incredible opportunity and important mission to help improve patient lives. And although we all work hard, there is a tremendous sense of camaraderie and friendship. Most importantly, we still know how to laugh and have fun…I enjoy my colleagues!
I was drawn to Avanir by the size of the company and its commitment to growth with a focus in serving patients suffering from CNS disorders. Our culture empowers us to stretch ourselves, allow for calculated risk- taking, and encourages innovation. Leading training and development for our commercial sales team, it is empowering to be part of a company that is committed to providing and creating opportunities to promote the professional development of its employees. I am proud to be a part of a company that places value on community and is dedicated in making a positive impact on patients’ lives.
The opportunities at Avanir are limitless, as there are many exciting projects and initiatives that are currently being worked on or explored for the future. It is truly a place where you can wear multiple hats and where your contributions will make a difference.
My time with Avanir has presented a series of great challenges and experiences. As a member of the Corporate Finance team, I have had the opportunity to contribute across a wide range of responsibilities not typically offered at other companies. Since arriving at Avanir, I have had the opportunity to grow professionally and demonstrate my leadership capabilities in critical projects. I am fortunate to work alongside a very talented team, which had been my initial attraction to Avanir, and having an opportunity to learn from each other. Everyone has a great sense of humor and provides encouragement and help to each other to meet the team’s goals and objectives.
Prior to arriving at Avanir, I was looking for a dynamic and innovative biopharmaceutical company where I could apply my skill set and experience to a broad set of responsibilities. Starting in a field-based medical role, I have recently been promoted to a role in the corporate office to build a team and department. Every day is different and I look forward to coming in and working with a team of professionals that know how to get the job done. It’s very reassuring to work with such a talented team that is committed to putting forth its best effort in everything it does. Avanir has turned out to be the perfect choice!
