Pros

Great product, not hard to sale, implement and train customer.

Cons

Upper management disconnect. Upper management does not value field Salesforce Salesforce vs management

We don't have a salesforce. I think they have the wrong company

    I worked at Dynavax Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some really great people in my department and others.

    Cons

    Upper management didn't communicate well. Lay offs were common. Lot's of unhappy, stressed out people. There was no company-wide policy for encouraging or rewarding workers. Sometimes we got food, I mean, that was how they "patted us on the back"...

    Advice to Management

    Tell the employees why they were there: To help people? Or just to make money...?

    Pros

    Not too big - hence communication *should* be easy. but - see below (cons).
    Payment average to ok-ish.

    Cons

    Very aggressive management. The spend a lot of time finger-pointing and searching for culprits rather than finding solutions. Hence the atmosphere is dominated by fear. I am so glad I left (like many others - hence the fluctuation is pretty high)

    Advice to Management

    Re-connect with your staff. Try too touch base and identify root causes rather then culprits.
    This will require a lot of courage since the root cause might lie in bad management decisions
