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

    Pros

    The training program at JuMP, which is the manufacturing plant in Bothell, is world class. They are hiring like crazy and trying their best to convert FTE when they can. Everyone has a mission to fight cancer with the best intentions driving them. There is a no "a**hole" policy and it makes Juno even better!

    Cons

    Sometimes communication can be rough between the teams and management.

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

    Pros

    The research they are doing to cure cancer is all anyone should need to see to want to work here! The benefit package is one of the best I’ve seen!

    Cons

    Currently none.... I am just starting. I see they are growing as a rapid pace and will find that interesting on how they deal with it.

    Advice to Management

    Remember who and what your mission is!

    I worked at Juno Therapeutics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    cutting edge science and hyper bright talented colleagues. Had to move back to the mid west for family reasons, but miss the awesome work and innovative thinking. Company was so supportive to me when I was going through a rough time.

    Cons

    This was my first experience at a small company. I complained a lot about the lack of process but now that I am in at another company, I actually think Juno had it right and was way ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes I guess you don't know how good it is until you leave. Keep the high standards you have about hiring new people and never settle. I will be watching from a far the great success of the company. Keep rewarding the employees for all their hard work. I have heard from friends at the company that there have been some new leaders who have joined. That is a good thing.

    I have been working at Juno Therapeutics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working at Juno for about 1.5 years now and I've not come across a single negative or toxic personality. Juno has a very stringent no *sshole policy and this makes for a wonderful team and experience!

    The new building on South Lake Union is very nice and the views from the 12th floor deck are amazing!

    I'm inspired daily by the dedication and collaboration that surrounds me. It really empowers me to be the best I can be and I hope to remain at Juno for as long as they'll have me! We truly believe in the work we do and the potential it holds for patients and their loved ones!

    Cons

    The new headquarters is located a little north of downtown necessitating a slightly longer commute for some folks. But to be honest, I'm talking about minutes. While the coffee/food situation is lacking, once the nearby buildings are finished there will surely be some options in their retail space! The walk to Westlake Ave is really not bad and it's packed with options!

    Pros

    The culture, hands down. My manager has an open door policy and encourages questions, no matter how simple or complex they are. I have the opportunity to work with some of the most intelligent people I have ever met and we all have the same desire to cure cancer. The facility I work at is beautiful and tucked away in Bothell so parking is never an issue.

    Cons

    It's a relatively new company, if that can be considered a con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Juno has great energy and great people. Everyone is working towards an amazing goal of curing cancer which brings people together.

    Cons

    Occasionally there can be long hours but I wouldn't say it's the norm.

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

    Pros

    Juno works very hard at making their culture fun for everyone. They host numerous morale-boosting events, give employees generous perks, and everyone involved with the company has a friendly demeanor. Juno also has a "roll your sleeves up and get to it" approach to the work we do, which results in a group of dedicated employees who are willing to dig into most tasks.

    Cons

    There is a palpable divide between administrative employees and the employees in charge of the scientific/commercial tasks. Though this is changing, admins sometimes feel undervalued. Also, although Juno works very hard to promote equality in the company, it is a fact that the majority of the people who hold powerful positions are white cis-gendered men. Not uncommon in the biotech world, but definitely a reality. Lastly, due to the nature of the work, there is a limited capacity for growth into new positions from an admin role.

    I have been working at Juno Therapeutics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company is both mission-oriented and employee-oriented. We care about our mission to cure cancer. We care about our patients. We also care about our employees. Juno provides wonderful career opportunities for it's people. Employees are encouraged to stretch their abilities and take an active role in their career growth. Benefits are good, compensation is good and work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    Juno has grown quickly and this involves a lot of change. It can be hard to keep up with a changing environment. If you want to work for Juno you must be flexible to changes and new ideas. Some new ideas succeed and some fail, you must be ok with that.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to employee concerns, address questions quickly and keep communication open. We're doing alright, but there are always things to improve!
