I have been working at Seattle Genetics full-time

Pros

Innovative company with a swift growing upward trajectory.Most of the people are great to work with and are great team players. Excellent benefits, easy access location.

Cons

Depending on the department you work in, upward mobility may be stiffled to a certain degree. Currently no work from home options or other flexible work arrangements "on the books". Any schedule flexibility is typically on the sly with your manager and is viewed as somewhat taboo. There are great training course that are coming into place for those going into or in management, though this is fairly new and there are many long term managers that were not provided the managerial/mentorship skills early on and they are not held accountable for improving any shortcomings in that arena. IT systems and computer equipment are a bit behind the times.

Advice to Management

Financial benefits are not the only way to retain quality employees. Please consider more work from home options and flexible work schedules for local employees. Commutes are something awful depending on where you live and with fewer distractions at home it is easier to be more productive/efficient. Phase out the dinosaur laptops at a swifter rate, they are not easy to work with.

    I have been working at Seattle Genetics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, most (not all though) colleagues are professional and helpful.

    Cons

    Highly toxic atmosphere created by managers and management. If they don't like you for any reason, they will undermine and constantly question EVERYTHING you do to the point where you question your competency and your sanity because even the most innocuous things get faulted. I've seen a LOT of people quit their jobs due to managers. There is also constant micromanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Please create a system where employees can approach HR to discuss manager issues without being judged or assumed they are liars or trouble makers.
