    I worked at Ambit Biosciences

    Pros

    Friendly environment, collaborations, unique technology, exciting developments

    Cons

    - Few opportunities for promotion or career growth in my department
    - Company is frequently restructuring
    - Infrequent communication with senior management regarding important issues that affect employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Something as simple as quarterly updates as to the companies standing, progress/achievements, and corporate plans wold be appreciated by employees. A short newletter would suffice, just to keep unity of outlook for the company between management and scientists.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ambit Biosciences.

    Interview Details

    I received an email from the hiring manager, we'll call her Babs. We spoke for about 30 minutes. The conversation was frank and comfortable. She asked questions about career goals, experience, and desired work environment. I also asked several questions that were answered clearly. It was, what I thought, a great phone interview. Babs said she would call me back in a few days after she discussed my interview with her team and HR. I was told I would most likely be invited for an in-person interview. It's been 6 weeks and I have not heard from Babs. This is not an unusual occurence. However, it is very rude and unprofessional not to follow up if you claim that is your intention.
