    I worked at Juno Therapeutics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good health coverage and a few great people. Beautiful new building (even though a bad financial decision) with nice views.

    Cons

    Amazingly bad management from the top down and a pass the buck attitude. HR has slow and non responsive track record. Academic approach to research programs and an unfortunate firewall between research and PAD who desperately needs scientific and biology input.

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

    Pros

    Exciting science and technology, many great people work here. Nice office space

    Cons

    A wonderful work place plagued by rapid expansion. Doors were opened and people were brought in out of convinience rather than going after the real talent and expertise which the company needed. Office politics soon replaced expertise and competence. Promotion by brown nosing replaced hard work. Decision are made behind close doors by the very people who have little to no experience on the related science or technology. If you speak up or raise concern about how things are done you will be shone from important meetings and decision making.
