    Pros

    People are very polite and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Some trial data were not posted on the corporate electronic document system, and were, instead, hidden in old emails from former workers or printed out and stored in poorly organized file folders. Statistical details were changed by the FDA and several statistical methods were used, making this a challenging set of documents to write. Consultants were not invited to meetings as much as necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Consider consultants as employees, so that they can get the job done as well as employees.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at XDx (Brisbane, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

I met with the statistician, then the clinical science liaison, then the EVP/CMO. We discussed common problems working with Key Opinion Leaders, CONSORT rules about trial flow diagrams.

Rejection hurts, but organ transplant rejection hurts worse, and XDx wants to help. The company makes tests that monitor for cellular rejection in heart transplants. Its FDA-approved AlloMap test measures gene expression in patients' blood samples to determine if a transplanted heart has been accepted.
