Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

It was alright job, it is in a manufacturing facility, so essentially you are doing cell process work. Work is repetitive, not really much thinking involved

Cons

not really fun, and tedious work. alright management team. I don't see a bright future with the compnany.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Dendreon (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Generous salary and benefits, including severance packages
    Powerful new technology
    Great product. I truly believe it has/will change the face of oncology.

    Cons

    New and naive
    Grew to fast because they were optimistic to a fault. Quadrupled their size in anticipation of sales. But didn't know how to market their drug, then had to lay off more than half of staff and close a facility.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to analyze situations better. A great product doesn't necessarily mean success. No drug can sell itself. Need experience and infrastructure rather than big ideas.
    Don't lose sight of the values that made Dendreon great. Need to balance the new with the old.

    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.
