I worked at Dendreon full-time (More than a year)
Excellent comp, terrific location, mission-oriented staff (cancer company) at the time
Company grew fast, developed first approved immunotherapy, decided to go it alone, so did not partner w/big pharma. As a result, company went bankrupt and was eventually acquired in virtual fire sale to rapacious company called Valeant (not valiant).
Advice to Management
Too late now, but you should have collaborated with more experienced companies once the therapy was approved.
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.
