I have been working at Seattle Genetics

Pros

The people. And really that's it.

Cons

They don't hire people who are intelligent very often. They definitely go for grades over common sense.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Grades aren't as important as someone who can do the job. Don't ask someone who is very qualified what their GPA was when they've been out of college and proven themselves for over a year. You short the rest of us here when you do that.

    Pros

    nice people, great product line

    Cons

    too small, at the mercy of vendors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    people who are legendary for being 'demanding' or 'aggressive' need to be kept in check. Supervisors who are under constant untreated stress need to be made aware that they can damage the culture with their behavior.

    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.
