    I worked at XOMA full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Small company so you get to know most everyone and the atmosphere is very collegial. Lots of very bright and talented people to work with. Historically they have been good about promoting from within so if you are willing to put yourself out there and do the work there are opportunities to advance and even make career changes. Salaries and benefits good for a company of their size. Many employees are able to have flexibility in hours or even telecommute some days.

    Cons

    Resources are limited so there are not as many opportunities to go to conferences or get cutting edge software or equipment like there are at larger companies. Interdepartmental communications could be better considering the size of the organization.
