    I worked at ChemoCentryx full-time

    Pros

    company provided lunches (more than often very stale) everyday

    Cons

    Everything one can think of! First off, very bad management; someone from Europe controls everything here in US and CEO lets that happen; HR is a joke; I can't even say it is a growing pain; Since CEO doesn't show any inclination to develop the company culture, i would rather say its growth is stunted; If you are literally starving and do NOT have any where to go and ready to pawn your esteem and ego, this is the place!

    Advice to Management

    listen to the staff; Have skip level lunches; invite openness; do not live in a denial. If not be prepared to be cited for the low quality work your are doing

    I have been working at ChemoCentryx full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pipeline, nice coworkers, some people know what they're doing. Small company so everyone knows everyone and communicates well together.

    Cons

    Awful management, CEO plays favorites, all employees are not treated equal, way too many company events that you are forced to go to. Lack of structure, compliance, and healthy work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and treat them all the same.

    Pros

    If you love long hours, a boss who middle manages you on a daily basis, and love working every single weekend this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Bad Management, high turnover, hostile work environment. Never in my career has a company been so terrible in all aspects.
