    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at FibroGen full-time


    Variety of drug development programs, fairly good benefits with respect to paid time off. ESPP and 401K matching


    Little transparency about key decisions, risk averse, poor processes for budgeting and project management

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication to employees, take a more even-handed approach to promotions, improve processes for budgeting

    Average Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FibroGen in May 2014.


    The interview process was very quick. I had a phone interview with the QC Senior Director and my onsite interview was scheduled the same day. A lot of technical questions and some behavioural questions. The hiring process took 1 month.
