    I worked at Clovis Oncology full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    * Two-days a week home office was great for a change as the location is not the best place to work. * Unlimited vacation time. * a Great starting salary of $160,000 but not worth the bad quality of life that San Francisco provides.

    Cons

    * Micromanagers * Favoritism * Finger-pointing/blame game * Fake people / double-faced * Managers with titles and no idea about processes and resources they are managing. * Outdated processes or manual work. Small biotech growing pains. * Downtown San Francisco (SF) office is one of the worst locations you can commute to right now. An ongoing construction (Warriors new stadium) next to the building, poor parking...

    Pros

    The work environment at Clovis is great. People here are eager to drive success of the company forward in a challenging competitive landscape. From an HR standpoint, they are flexible and provide good benefits.

    Cons

    The only downside is that it is a small company in a competitive environment, so it's a volatile situation in terms of security going forward. But it also adds to the excitement.
