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

    Pros

    The company respects and cares about their employees. Recently there was a layoff and the management handled it very well. It is a quite place to work, everyone is very focused and cares about the success of the company. I have been working there for almost a year and I am very happy. Benefit is great.

    Cons

    I would like to see more employee activities. It seem like everyone is in their own bubble.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing they all are very awesome people to work with.

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

    Pros

    Direkte Kommunikation, kurze Wege, nette Kollegen.
    Ein interessantes und gutes Produkt kurz vor der Zulassung und einige mehr in Vorbereitung.
    In den letzten zwei Jahren hat sich viel zum Guten entwickelt.

    Cons

    ...Arbeitsbelastung ist immer noch ziemlich hoch, die deutsche Niederlassung ist (zu) stark USA-gesteuert und hat zu wenig lokale Einflussmöglichkeiten

    Advice to Management

    Mehr Unabhängigkeit wagen von der Muttergesellschaft wagen ( aber ob die das zulässt....)

    I have been working at Dynavax Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Kleine und überschaubare Firma. Gut erreichbar zwischen Köln und Düsseldorf gelegen.

    Cons

    Eine Geschäftsführung, die sich nicht für ihre Mitarbeiter interessiert. Managementfehler werden auf die unteren Ebenen durchreicht. Daraus resultieren eine völlig vergiftete Arbeitsatmosphäre, frustrierte Mitarbeiter und eine sehr hohe Personalfluktuation.

    Pros

    freundliche Mitarbeiter
    großzügige Geschäftsleitung
    alles in Aufbruch
    Es wird was nichts mit der Arbeit zu tun hat, nicht zu eng gesehen.

    Cons

    Die Firma wird umstruktuiert
    manchmal etwas durcheinander
    manchmal zu amerikanisch
    Es ist kein Betriebsrat vorhanden
