    I have been working at Global Blood Therapeutics for more than a year

    Pros

    Was treated well during the recruitment and interview process, which moved along at a reasonable pace. Staff sincerely believes in their mission and wants to make a difference in the lives of their under served patients. Very exciting and important drug! CEO is down to earth and very well liked. Office space is pleasantly designed and building is situated in a beautiful setting near a waterside walking trail.

    Cons

    Some growing pains but that is to be expected.

    Pros

    GBT has an inspiring mission to develop a drug to cure sickle cell disease.

    Cons

    In a certain department, your work performance, volume, and output does not matter. What matters is the politics you play and whether or not the management "likes you."

    Advice to Management

    You need to hire managers who are supportive of their subordinates and NOT those that backstab their direct reports.

    I have been working at Global Blood Therapeutics full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    1) Although biotech is a business, the company is very patient focused and cares about the patient experience and patient treatment options. This comes from the top down as the CEO, Ted Love, is very much focused on the patient experience. He is a great leader, very approachable and seems to truly care about the patients and the company employees. 2) A chance to be a part of helping an underserved patient population...

    Cons

    I've been in Biotech/Clinical Trials for over 15 years. There are a lot of positives at this company that it is really hard to think of any negatives. It would be nice if the company paid for part of commute costs as SSF is packed with biotech and very few employees live in SSF proper. Ferry, BART, driving/tolls is a decent sized expense for the employee. For me, its about $3,700 a year.

    Pros

    My first interaction with Global Blood Therapeutics was a telephone interview with the Director/HR in February 2016. The conversation was direct, included many aspects of the position I was interviewing for and explored my areas of interest as well. Professional and extremely pleasant, this discussion was one of the most interesting and respectful telephone interviews that I have had in my thirty year career. Based...

    At the risk of being facetious, too much good food in the break room.
