    I worked at InterMune

    Pros

    Great range of people (it takes all kinds)
    After a regulatory glitch a few years back, new mgmt was brought in and almost everyone with bad habits was flushed out
    Mgmt has a knack for picking people they know will work well in their groups
    Great morale programs (recognition, feedback, events, outings)
    Great benefits & options (even pet health insurance if you want to shell out for it)
    Nice enough location: close to the city, but don't have to hassle with parking issues; overlooks a hill where horses roam, as well as the bay
    On-site shower
    Free breakfast cereal, frozen yogurt, subsidized vending machines, not afraid of drinking at social events

    Cons

    It's biotech, i.e. tensions can run high when everyone knows their jobs could be cut
    Gossip can run a bit amok
    Not a lot of lunch options around the area

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remind people that you can only give negative comments about your co-workers to someone above you - otherwise it's gossip

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brisbane, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at InterMune in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring manager will call you and discuss your qualifications, skills and experience for the first half of the interview (15 minutes). The hiring manager will answer any questions and tell you about the company in the second half of the interview (15 minutes).

    The second interview is a 1:1 with the hiring manager to discuss the type of work and projects that are go to be implemented. You will be taken to lunch.

    The third interview was with a group (if you are a manager, your peers will interview you). They asked about management style, what are your expectations, and there will be an exchange of information.

    At the end, everyone involved with the interview process completes the evaluation form and scores you. The highest score gets the job.
