    I have been working at Seattle Genetics full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, area is nice, pay and benefits are good as well.

    Cons

    Poor communication between management and both the internal IT structure and the organization as a whole.

    Decisions and changes are made with little thought for what it entails to carry out said decisions and with little/no interaction with staff. Management is unable/unwilling to set a global standard, with exceptions granted for every policy.

    Little room for advancement as the group structure is in flux and is reliant on management making decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep upper management out of the daily work, there is too much micromanagement. Create more opportunities for upward mobility. Listen to the people who do the work before making decisions based on what sounds good or what the business partners want.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Seattle Genetics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The CEO and upper management foster a company culture that is very patient focused. The work environment is supportive, and benefits are good. Great science, people are very passionate about the work, and there is a high amount of integrity in the way things are done.

    Cons

    It can take time to achieve upward mobility due a relatively low turnover rate. Career development is treated by some managers as a black box which the employee should have limited knowledge of.

    I have been working at Seattle Genetics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and nice location. A lot of truly great coworkers. The benefits are good. SeaGen's work makes a difference in people's lives.

    Cons

    Certain managers have no clue how to lead or motivate employees. Understaffing and stifling micromanagement are not effective leadership styles.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time trying to get honest negative reviews removed from the internet and spent more time correcting the problems that lead to these reviews. Improvement starts by identifying your weaknesses, not erasing the evidence.
