    I worked at Cytokinetics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent work environment, culture & people. It was a very familial, friendly place to work and the type of place where you enjoyed coming into work every day.

    Cons

    I don't think I would have had the opportunity to grow here because it was such a small department that there probably wouldn't have been anywhere for me to go.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cytokinetics.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR for a phone interview. Then I was contacted a couple days later for on-site interview with 5 people. Everyone was very nice and I can tell the employees liked working for the company. HR contacted me a few days later and told me I didn't get the job. Although I didn't get the job I did enjoy meeting everyone and I liked how they treated me in the entire process.
