Pros

It is a novel drug that will improve the quality of people's lives. Time off is very fair but pay is not great.

Cons

Stock price is in the toilet and morale is not very good right now after the layoffs. Should bounce back though.

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    If you are looking for great benefits and comparable compensation Dendeon is the place for you. If that is your ultimate goal then this company is perfect.

    Cons

    They lie to employees constantly. There is no stabilioty whatsoever. They tell you you will get paid one thing and pay you something else. There is no work, life, balance at all. They continously change your hours making it hard to adjust. Management is cut throat and cold hearted. Management plays favorites. Dendreon coaxed people away from stable jobs where the would not otherwise have been laid off promising advancement opportunities and months later after jerking them around, discarded them without a second thought. The severence was a PR move for damage control. If you have a job that is stable I would not leave it to join the Dendreon family unless it is as a second job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to remove favoritism from your management style and treat your employees like they are people. Training is essential to the job. Don't disgard well trained people for untrained ones because of personal preference. After all according to you it is the patient that should come first not the egos of the managers and supervisors.
