    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Zymeworks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Just moved to a nice building downtown. I had to change up my commute a little but it is nice.

    Cons

    Petty co-workers. Drama galore in certain groups. They are having trouble growing good teams with the toxic culture in middle management.

    I have been working at Zymeworks full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Great working environment - Diverse teams - Thoughtful executive leadership - Emphasis on hard work but recognizes and appreciates what employees do - Lots of perks like onsite massages, snacks, social events! Especially with the current COVID-19 situation, I am so grateful for all the care the Zymeworks has put into thinking about us employees during such tough times. From supporting us to work remotely, to organizing virtual social events to help us stay connected and to keeping us up-to-date on the constantly changing situation. This had made what is a very difficult and unpredictable situation, very manageable.

    Cons

    I can't think of any right now.
