    I have been working at Seagen for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun, fast paced work environment with tons of resources. The company is working on tons of interesting projects. Lots of opportunities to author papers and/or present research within the company. Supportive of personal development and scientific interests of the employees. Good environment for ambitious individuals who want to climb. Contractors are often converted to FTEs after a period of demonstrating good work.

    Cons

    Dynamics between different teams can be political. Management at the department level and above can be out of touch at times. Some emphasis on individual achievement and making the team look good to higher ups rather than on just doing quality work or on the patient. Contractors are not treated the same way as FTEs.

    Incredibly friendly and collaborative work environment with lots of opportunity for career growth and development. The company has a bright future due to our pipeline and I can see myself here for years to come.

    We're in high growth mode right now which means lots of change. That being said, company leadership is receptive to employee feedback and has a track record of addressing concerns head-on and making positive changes via employee engagement surveys.

    Pros

    This company is employee focused and does everything it can to provide a work environment that fosters collaboration and ingenuity. The people are great and the C-suite is accessible. This is not common for large companies! Pay is above average for the area, employee benefits are incredible (PTO, stock options, vested 401K and generous bonuses/ raises, flex hours, etc.)

    Cons

    I like working here so I can't say there are cons

    I worked at Seagen

    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.
