I worked at Seattle Genetics full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

There are chances to learn about every aspect of biotech if you want to learn.
Reasonable time off.

Cons

A lot of micro-management from people that aren't actually your manager. Annoying.
Not actually in Seattle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to why people are leaving the company. Some of us moved for family. Some others just had horrid, horrid experiences. Try to fix the latter.

    I have been working at Seattle Genetics full-time

    Pros

    Seattle Genetics has grown to be one of the top biotech companies in the Seattle area. It is known as the place to be because it is a growing company with a great product and pipeline. The pay is fair and benefits are really good. The common thread across all departments is that everyone is very respectful of each other. Overall, it's one of the best and most productive work environments I've been in.

    Cons

    Contrary to the company name, Seattle Genetics is not actually located in Seattle. It is headquartered in Bothell which is about 25 miles north of Seattle proper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO is too vested in the day to day sometimes. He needs to focus on the bigger picture/strategic decisions. The company should also be more open to flex time.

    I worked at Seattle Genetics full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    This company will help save many lives. I like their vision and goals and where it's going. CEO is great. Benefits are competitive with other biotech company which tend to have great medical/dental/retirement plans. Seattle Genetics is no exception.

    Cons

    The IT department is old school and seems to be staying that way. Behind on everything. Lots of growing pains and completely reactive. The were transition when I was there and it seemed neither for better or worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some positive leadership within IT. Everyone was very negative and brought the energy way down when it needed it most. Find people you can stand by and won't throw you under the bus. Someone like the Director of Facilities who was positive uplifting and encouraging.
