Cutting edge company with a first-in-class technology. Easily some of the smartest people in the pharmaceutical industry. Very good salary and options packages.
Like any top biotech or pharma, it is not a 9 to 5, 40 hours per week workplace. If those are the expectations then this probably is not the place for you.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Isis Pharmaceuticals (Carlsbad, CA) in March 2015.
I applied online - Looked up job through indeed.com and applied directly through ISIS Pharma website. The process took 1 month. There was a phone interview with the hiring manager - where he asked how motivated I was, why did I chose ISIS pharma, how did I chose to do a PhD and little bit about other research experiences. Most important was my experience in animal handling. Within a week I was selected for onsite interview. I met with 10 people and gave a presentation on my PhD research. After a week I was intimated of the offer.
