I have been working at NGM Biopharmaceuticals full-time
NGM Bio has strong and innovative research efforts. A place where people have high ambitions to make discoveries leading to novel therapies. A lot of great energy and very nice colleagues.
NGM Bio is still a growing company, you needs to be flexible to meet challenges as the company is growing and changing.
Great interview process. One-hour talk (well, 45 mins plus question-and-answer) plus one-on-one interviews with several department heads, senior managers, and scientists. The talk was well-attended and there were lots of great questions. It was clear there was a genuine interest in the science, rather than people showing up because it was required. Everyone I met with was friendly and engaged.
The hiring manager impressed me right off the bat by sitting me down first thing and sketching me out a diagram of the hierarchy of the department, explaining how the people I was going to meet with fit in - who was in which group, who reported to who, who was involved in what, etc. It was so helpful, and not a single person I had ever interviewed with before did that.
