I have been working at Nektar Therapeutics full-time (More than 8 years)
Flexible hours with an overall emphasis on maintaining a good work/life balance.
Very competitive pay and great benefits.
Working on programs that are rewarding/life changing to the general public is beyond gratifying.
Need to afford more internal opportunity and value the expertise in house instead of hiring externally.
I applied online. I interviewed at Nektar Therapeutics.
Interview with HR, 2nd Interview with Hiring Manager. Both phone calls. Hiring Manager hung up on me 5 minutes into the conversation. Very unprofessional. I was mid sentence and he said "ok thank bye" and hung up. Definitely shows what kind of company they are if they cannot even take an interview seriously or professionally.
