Since working at Dendreon I have learned a lot about sterility, cell processing, material management, batch records, documentation, shipping and receiving, FDA inspections, and quality control.
The co-workers that I have met and worked with are like family to me and are treasured on many levels.
The hardest part of the job is the constant changes but you learn to adapt.
The most enjoyable part of the job is that the management team can relate and are willing to go the distance with you.
