I worked at Human Genome Sciences (More than 5 years)
Everyone treated one another with respect no matter how low they were on the totem poll. Great family type of environment.
Managers weren't inclined to listen to feedback from employees.
Advice to Management
Take the advice of those who actually do the work.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Human Genome Sciences (Rockville, MD) in July 2011.
This was one of the most natural interview processes I have ever experienced. Received the typical email receipt, then a phone call from a very upbeat person, followed by an interview in person with several people about 30 minutes each. While interviewing I was always encouraged to ask questions and if I was comfortablef, needed breaks etc. Everyone acted as if they were happy that I took the time to look at HGS, and made to feel I had personal and professional worth. The position was represented accurately and I never felt like anyone was trying to hide anything or secretly give me any hidden warnings with a wink and a nod. I did not receive the job but felt like it was a positive experience. I left there wishing I could work there in any position because everyone was so positive.
