I worked at Exelixis full-time (More than a year)
They really respect their employees and encourage work-life balance in addition to good pay and all of the major holidays off. They also encourage teamwork and collaboration.
There is a fairly high level of stress due to their status a s start up company which will continue until they start turning a profit from their one commercial product.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Exelixis (South San Francisco, CA) in May 2017.
After a telephone interview with the principal manager, I met with 5 other employees from various segments of the company which included Finance, legal, HR and Compliance. The interviewers had anywhere from a few months of time with the company to 13 years. I met with each person for 30 minutes.
