Xoma: much more than its share price would suggest!

Programmer (Current Employee)
Berkeley, CA

I have been working at XOMA

ProsAs a small/medium company, Xoma can't afford to compartmentalize its employees too much, so I get to work on a wide range of interesting project and take on fun challenges. I get a lot of latitude in choosing what to word on, and even more in determining how to implement it. I deeply respect my coworkers, who are overwhelmingly very smart. Finally, Xoma does a decent job promoting career development, paying for employee classes and training.

ConsCompensation and benefits are lacking.

Advice to Senior ManagementI sometimes think that there's a disconnect between employees in Preclinical R&D and those in the main administration building -- very few from one group have any idea what the other group does, which inevitably leads to some amount of distrust.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
