    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work life balance in Seagen is good. Could learn a lot of knowledge from the colleagues. A lot of meetings with people from different functions.

    Cons

    First, the green card application starts only after H1B being selected. Second, cannot work from home, on site only. But WFH is currently being discussed. It should be flexible in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Manage system is good. The managers are really nice. But do not have the new employee training. Hope in the future will be better.

    Pros

    Nice people, comfortable environment, many activities were held for interns, including bubble soccer, a tour to lake, BBQ and etc. Supervisors are knowledgeable and responsible.

    Cons

    A little bit too short, wish it can last longer. Since there is not enough space for every intern in the buildings, our office is in trailers next to the buildings and it is kind of far to walk back and forth.
