Pros

nice people, great product line

Cons

too small, at the mercy of vendors

Advice to ManagementAdvice

people who are legendary for being 'demanding' or 'aggressive' need to be kept in check. Supervisors who are under constant untreated stress need to be made aware that they can damage the culture with their behavior.

    I worked at Seattle Genetics

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
