    I worked at Vical full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Unfortunately we were all laid off. The quality team I worked with was professional, knowledgeable and felt like family to me. I had never been happier. It was sad the drug failed and I didn't get to stay long. Great company!

    Cons

    Risky products. They don't really have anything else to work on now that their drug failed, I wish they would get more ideas and start back up.

    Advice to Management

    I was only there for 6 months. I only interacted with management in my department and they were great. We has a true leader that I will speak of forever!
