"Excellent in Theory, Disappointing in Practice."

No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Fantastic product concept, good benefits, decent salary. Excellent team of professionals at my level.

Cons

There are wide disparities in management quality, training and experience within departments. Work-life balance is challenging, given management's expectation of unlimited availability regardless of whether outside normally scheduled days and times. Little concern if any, is given to the personal cost or inconvenience to the employees in question.

    I worked at Dendreon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Benefits, work life balance, co-workers, 'feel good industry', downtown location

    Cons

    -Leadership/Board doesn't seem to make the right decisions, Stock granted is not worth anything so not a good indication of overall salary/pay. Leadership/Board of Directors seem to think of the stock only and not as much about growing the company, thinking of the patient first (one of the values!)...

    Advice to Management

    Let people on the front line make decisions and listen to them - stop making poor decisions that impact stock and physician's decision to use the product.

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

    Pros

    Great work environment. Team mentality. Cutting edge science and process development activities. Very different from typical biotechs.

    Cons

    Company stability fluctuates wildly due to stock price. New technology is taking longer for Dr's to become comfortable with than traditional biotech products.
