Great while it was growing. The company made some basic mistakes and was forced to close the NJ plant.

    I have been working at Dendreon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It was alright job, it is in a manufacturing facility, so essentially you are doing cell process work. Work is repetitive, not really much thinking involved

    Cons

    not really fun, and tedious work. alright management team. I don't see a bright future with the compnany.

    I worked at Dendreon for less than a year

    Pros

    Generous salary and benefits, including severance packages
    Powerful new technology
    Great product. I truly believe it has/will change the face of oncology.

    Cons

    New and naive
    Grew to fast because they were optimistic to a fault. Quadrupled their size in anticipation of sales. But didn't know how to market their drug, then had to lay off more than half of staff and close a facility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really need to analyze situations better. A great product doesn't necessarily mean success. No drug can sell itself. Need experience and infrastructure rather than big ideas.
    Don't lose sight of the values that made Dendreon great. Need to balance the new with the old.
