    Your Prostate Your Decision - Joe Torre Talks Treatment |

    Half of newly diagnosed men have low-risk prostate cancer that is unlikely to spread, yet 90% receive aggressive immediate treatment. Active surveillance is an appropriate treatment plan for many, yet few men consider it as an option - in fact, a recent study shows only 10% of men link it to prostate cancer.

Genomic Health – Why Work For Us?


Company Overview

Genomic Health, a global health company founded in August of 2000 and located in Redwood City, California, is committed to improving the quality of cancer treatment decisions through the research, development and commercialization of genomic-basedclinical laboratory services. To that end, the company conducts sophisticated genomic research to develop clinically-validated molecular diagnostics which provide individualized information on response to certain types of therapy, as well as the likelihood of disease recurrence. These diagnostic technologies generate information that healthcare providers and patients can use in making treatment decisions.

At Genomic Health, we developed and follow a highly specialized process that not only adheres rigorously to CAP (College of American Pathologists) standards and CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) regulations, but also incorporates numerous real-time quality checks and periodic proficiency testing designed to produce a high level of accuracy in information that we deliver to physicians and patients.

Product Overview

The company's lead product, the Oncotype DX breast cancer test, has been shown to predict the likelihood of chemotherapy benefit as well as recurrence in invasive breast cancer and has been shown to predict the likelihood of recurrence in ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). In addition to this widely adopted test, Genomic Health provides theOncotype DX colon cancer test, the first multi-gene expression test developed for the assessment of risk of recurrence in patients with stage II and stage III disease and the Oncotype DX prostate cancer test, which predicts disease aggressiveness in men with low risk disease. Genomic Health has a robust pipeline focused on developing tests to further optimize the treatment of breast, colon and prostate cancers, as well as the treatment of renal cancer.

    The fact I know everyone is working very hard to improve our patients lives in tandem with the approachable upper management keeps me coming back day after day with a smile.


    You wont find kitchens full of goodies like Google or Facebook, but if that is what gets you to work - you probably are not challenging yourself.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Genomic Health in March 2015.


    The interview took around 45 minutes with very in-depth questions about my project at school. Not many questions about my past experience. I think that is the way the interviewer figured out whether I did contribute anything for the project and whether I really led the team as I mentioned. They had not come back to me after that although I pinged them sometimes. Thus I think that is the way they say "No".
