I have been working at Seattle Genetics full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Focus on good science, careful data analysis. Good resources for lab work. Collegial peers. Excellent environment for learning from others; good cross-functional communication.

Cons

Company is growing fast, so risks losing positive culture. That being said, management is aware and values keeping the culture that employees value.

Advice to Management

Make sure you don't lose track of what employees are saying. Communication is dwindling. Don't isolate yourselves from the company as a whole.

    Pros

    Great work environment, flexibility, decent benefits. Senior management team is impressive overall with one or two exceptions. Company is in excellent financial health.

    Cons

    Located in Bothell. Long commute if you live in Seattle. Flexibility with telecommuting is dependent on your department. Salaries are on the low side.

    Pros

    Great company vision.
      Good pipeline.
      Some colleagues are Professional and helpful.
      Training opportunities.
      Decent compensation and benefits

    Cons

    Taken from earlier review:

    Decision-making is not transparent -- many behind closed doors. No life. Very hard to get through a work day in the office. In meetings someone controls everyone by setting his own agenda and deciding what everybody else do and how they do it and when. The meetings are a one-man show where the person calls the shots in a controlling talk. Others have to sit stiff and silent listening. No one shares their thoughts and ideas in an open and friendly atmosphere. No smiles, laughs.. Just work and leave. Its made obvious that you are not trusted, your ideas, suggestions, questions are not welcome. Just do what is told.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a channel for employees to reach out to their HR, people are afraid to speak their minds, try to empower them. Let employees have a life outside work, which doesn't mean company parties and outings. Also, ensure employees personal time outside office hours be personal, not to be reached just because you have their contact. Good people can go anywhere, its your job to keep them. Time to upgrade outdated software for sharing systems.
