    Pros

    Fosters a great work environment and makes you feel like a part of the family. I was also very happy with the food that they had for the employees. Also they hold meetings every Friday to keep everyone informed which is a very nice touch.

    Cons

    Company is expanding a lot so you move around quite a bit.

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

    Pros

    Company is good. Works towards the cause to cure cancer.

    Cons

    Awful supervisor. No respect for an employee, does not listen and comes to conclusion, micromanages and no flexibility compared to other employees in same department. Horrible work environment. No clear communication between the manager and employee.

    Advice to Management

    Look into managers training on how to communicate and respect their colleagues.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, especially the health insurance. Most people in the company are wonderful to work with. CEO is very passionate about the company.

    Cons

    No option to work remotely in spite of the godawful traffic in the area.
    The programming department has a lot of misogyny in it. There is also bad blood between the programming and biostatistics departments which is taken out on the programmers, and HR doesn't seem to want to do anything. Managers tend to play favorites which affects career growth. Taking sick leave and vacations is frowned upon and sometimes not allowed.
