Too few people with expertise and improper management of employee concerns

Pros

Marketed product truly makes a difference in patients' lives. Physicians have a positive view of Seattle Genetics. Cross-functional teams and task forces are very common. Organizational structure is appropriate. All company meetings keep employees informed.

Cons

Expertise is limited thus leaving the SMEs with an enormous workload but without recognition from those who lack experience, including some in senior leadership roles. Direct communication is lacking. Personnel concerns are not addressed thoroughly or timely. Hiring/gaining additional resources is borderline impossible, in part due to lack of Senior Management experience across all functions of the company. All teams/personnel are not treated equally with regard to titles, pay and respect. Additional minor cons include: no onsite cafeteria, minimal vacation package, location.

Advice to Management

Recommend Senior Leadership better understand the health of the employees and concerns they might have. It would be tragic to lose the talent that is experienced and can find work elsewhere.

    Pros

    People, process, work ethic, development expertise, fun group gatherings and "competitions", incredible scientific minds

    Cons

    RA's viewed as expendable commodities.......the threat that they can be "easily replaced" is always thick in the air.

    Advice to Management

    All scientists are not capable of properly managing and training people.......hire only those who can.....only then will you create an overall team with incredible partnerships and trust.

    Pros

    The company itself is great and the people are fantastic. I think there's a lot to be said for the worker bees who make the most of it every day and really add a great sense of fun and teamwork to the environment. They definitely have a good pipeline and will likely have a very stable future.

    Cons

    The culture, as others have said, is incredibly toxic. Managers micromanage, people aren't empowered to make decisions and even when they are they're often second guessed or 'undone' by Sr. Management. I worked in a group that wasn't allowed to make decisions and was ruled by iron fist.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people for no apparent reason; not everyone is made out to manage people, in fact, some of them just shouldn't.
