    I worked at Dendreon (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of smart and good people at the company, perfect place to learn. Great work-life balance

    Cons

    Pipeline is dry. The company made too many early missteps that makes it difficult to compete in current environment against bigger competitions. Pay and benefit is lower than competition.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to take some R&D bets. The company is dying a slow death and bleeding talents consistently.

    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    I went through an interview panel with 2 of the managers. They asked very standard interview questions. Not a lot of technical, more behavioral. They asked what you knew about the company and elaborate more on your resume. Mainly check to see if you are fit for their culture and vice versa. They want to see you're willing to learn and enthusiasm I'd key.
