    Pros

    Great work atmosphere:
    -friendly co-workers and management.
    -nice sized cubicle with natural light from sky-lights.
    -break room which has high end espresso machine and filtered hot & cold water dispenser plus multiple refrigerators and microwaves.

    Employee parking!

    Great orientation and training.

    My supervisor has strong communication skills and keeps me up-to-date on my teams plans/goals and what is expected of me.

    Company takes the time and effort of keeping all employees informed about what's happening with our various trials; by doing so, this allows each employee to feel that they are an important contributor to the companies success.

    Overall - I am new to this company; so far my experience is that it is a great place to work and I feel extremely fortunate to have been hired here.

    Cons

    At this point in my employement experience, I honestly do not have any cons to address; if I did I would have included.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! As a newly hired employee, I have had a great on-boarding experience and I am very enthusiastic about working for Dynavax.

    Pros

    Some really great people in my department and others.

    Cons

    Upper management didn't communicate well. Lay offs were common. Lot's of unhappy, stressed out people. There was no company-wide policy for encouraging or rewarding workers. Sometimes we got food, I mean, that was how they "patted us on the back"...

    Advice to Management

    Tell the employees why they were there: To help people? Or just to make money...?
