    StarStarStarStarStar Current Research Associate II in Bothell, Washington State

    Seattle Genetics thinks that since they provide health insurance then they do not need to pay employees industry standard wages. Even though health insurance is industry standard

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Clinical Data Associate in Bothell, Washington State

    Best thing is timeoff, and insurance. Also, they have a good 401k match and stock options. But you need to stick to the company for long time to get best out of it

  • Mar 07, 2017
    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.

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