Life in the clinical SAS programming is very difficult

I have been working at Seattle Genetics full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Cutting edge in technology and standards. All the most recent standards and tools are deployed. Variety in work experience. Become a lead in a short time period.

Cons

No life. Very hard to get through a work day in the office. The head of clinical programming controls everyone by setting his own agenda and deciding what everybody else do and how they do it and when. The meetings are a one-man show where he calls the shots in a controlling talk. Others have to sit stiff and silent listening. No one shares their thoughts and ideas in an open and friendly atmosphere. The thought is that otherwise, they would be facing the wrath of the anger, translated as a threat to their financial livelihood. No smiles, laughs.. Just work and leave. Its made obvious that you are not trusted, your ideas, suggestions, questions are not welcome. Just do what is told and get out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let employees live a little. Just because they are paid doesn't mean that you to have suck the last ounce of life out of them and prove that you are very efficient.

    Pros

    The people. And really that's it.

    Cons

    They don't hire people who are intelligent very often. They definitely go for grades over common sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grades aren't as important as someone who can do the job. Don't ask someone who is very qualified what their GPA was when they've been out of college and proven themselves for over a year. You short the rest of us here when you do that.
