    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Genocea Biosciences full-time (More than 3 years)


    Employees are dedicated and energetic. Nice approach on the vaccine development industry. The CEO is charismatic, makes people happy to be there. The company values its employees, has good benefits and offers many events to help the employees know each other. I love to go to work, and believe 95% of the other employees do too.


    After passing public in February 2014, Genocea had to realize that it can not do "Everything", and that in order to do "a lot" it needs more employees, needs to outsource certain projects, etc. As such, we had a difficult transition time, but all gets better already. I have no doubt things will be smoother soon.

    Advice to Management

    While projects multiply "upstairs" bodies need to multiply "downstairs".

    Senior Scientist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Genocea Biosciences (Cambridge, MA).


    Applied through a recruiter. Very quick response, got a call from hiring manager in 2 days, after 2 hrs of my phone interview, got an invite for onsite interview. Onsite interview was scheduled after 3 weeks; I gave a 45 min talk to a group of 25 employees. All were patient and polite listeners. All questions were related to experience and expertise. The talk was followed by one to one interviews with scientists and associates. All of them were respectful gave me enough time to feel comfortable during the conversations. A very generic interview process for any biotech scientific role. They did not break any rules. Got an offer after some what intense referral check (3-4 weeks for total process). Salary was atleast 10% below my expectation, but I accepted the role because I like the nature of my position. I see good future for the company.
