I have been working at NGM Biopharmaceuticals

Pros

This company possesses some of the greatest vision and execution that I have ever experienced in biotech. The senior management is top notch. Our board of directors is without parallel. We possess a tremendous Scientific Advisory Board! This company is a rarity in the biotechnology field. All of my coworkers are intelligent, cheerful and generous. Our CEO Bill Rieflin is very approachable for discussions. The senior management gives a quarterly state of the union address in which they field questions from all employees and give transparency for company guidance and finances. The pipeline is full of interesting and exciting targets. My supervisor is amazing!

Cons

Everyone works a tremendous amount of hours, much more than required.
The compensation of salary is a little below the industry standard
The internet is slow (we need to upgrade our system).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We are in a period of rapid growth and expansion!
Try to maintain the culture including the free Tuesday lunches and Friday happy hours!

    Cons

    I miss some of the perks of working for a big company: onsite gyms, Genenbuses, larger salaries, bonuses, etc. but overall like the feel of a smaller company better.

    Hopefully we can maintain this great atmosphere as we grow.
