Most Commented

  • Health Insurance(8 comments)

    The benefit is comparable to other companies.

  • 401K Plan(7 comments)

    For contractors, 401k plan is provided by staffing agency

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(4 comments)

    lots of vacation vacation days. But you get grief if asking to use them. And always end up being called and emailed when off.

Great benefits, 401K matching is not as generous as some larger companies.

Company only provides partial 401(k) match

Current Research Associate in San Francisco, California

Commuter stipend is great, medical/dental/vision is great, and standard 401k matching.

Former Project Manager in San Francisco, California

Health care packages were great.

Jan 2, 2020
Former Director of Clinical Operations in San Francisco, California

Best benefit was Nektar’s vesting policy

Dec 29, 2019
Former Employee

The benefits package was relatively solid; it offered many perks that are to be expected from bay area pharma/ biotech. It may not be as good as very large companies but it is extensive for a middle sized company. Best: Good health insurance options Worst: lack of direct tuition assistance, mediocre 401k match

Best: commuter benefits are great; health / dental / vision insurance are also very good. Worst: can't think of a bad benefit.
