I have been working at Genocea Biosciences full-time (Less than a year)
You can get involved in almost any area of the company that you'd like. Management trusts hard working employees, which allows for growth and opportunities. People are extremely nice and happy to help you learn and feel comfortable.
The culture is possibly one of the best things about the company. There are a lot of fun events where you can get to know your colleagues. The CEO encourages a fun and hard working environment, and strikes a nice balance between the two. Genocea employees are dedicated to everything they do, including having fun. I can't see myself ever choosing to leave Genocea.
The company is growing quick, hopefully the culture remains the same.
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.
