    “Many specialty providers do not accept it because the insurance company is one of the most challenging to work with on reimbursements”

    The HR group is constantly working to improve benefits and does a great job at listening to employees' needs

    They did paid overtime which was great. Also a lot of exciting events, food trucks everyday and food delivery options.

    3mo 100% paid maternity leave, great match of 401k plan

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Bothell, Washington State

    Excellent benefits especially health/dental/vision insurance. Vacation and sick leave is about standard as other industries. Cash bonus is given once a year. Pay raise is between 1-3% every year. Working from home is not offered and employees are discouraged from it.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Seattle, Washington State

    Excellent stock and bonus perks. However, 401K match is lacking.

  • Dec 29, 2016
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Bothell, Washington State

    Strong medical, dental, and vision benefits. 401k employer match not on par with industry standards.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Scientist in Bothell, Washington State

    Seattle Genetics strikes a nice balance of getting the most out of their employees and keeping overhead in-check. The management seems to want me to be productive, and is willing to provide benefits to encourage that. Also, there seems to be some incentivizing for high quality work, which I think is a good way to run a company.

    Great matching 401k, low out of pocket costs for health insurance if individual subscriber.

  • Jan 15, 2016
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Bothell, Washington State

    The coverage is a strong package balanced between employee out of pocket and company coverage. Very competitive, I think.

  • Dec 09, 2015
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Data Associate in Bothell, Washington State

    401k Matching is great, up to 4.5%
