    I worked at Human Genome Sciences full-time (more than 5 years)


    Great co-workers, developing products that had the potential to significantly improve patient health, opportunity to be involved in health authority interactions as a relatively new hire.


    Although HR and senior management were aware - as a result of a large number of exit interviews - at least one management person was not suited to the role and would have been better off without direct reports.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Human Genome Sciences in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    This was one of the most natural interview processes I have ever experienced. Received the typical email receipt, then a phone call from a very upbeat person, followed by an interview in person with several people about 30 minutes each. While interviewing I was always encouraged to ask questions and if I was comfortablef, needed breaks etc. Everyone acted as if they were happy that I took the time to look at HGS, and made to feel I had personal and professional worth. The position was represented accurately and I never felt like anyone was trying to hide anything or secretly give me any hidden warnings with a wink and a nod. I did not receive the job but felt like it was a positive experience. I left there wishing I could work there in any position because everyone was so positive.
