Cut throat and poor management
MSL (Former Employee) –  Boston, MASeptember 11, 2017
The management is very poor at Exelixis. They cross the line often when it comes to Pharma Guidelines. Medical Affairs and sales work very closely together. Medical Affairs takes direction from sales. A lot of travel involved. Not organized in terms of management or objectives. No objectives stated.
Pros
money
Cons
management and ethics are poor

Good Career Starter
Outsourcing Analyst I (Former Employee) –  South San Francisco, CAJanuary 22, 2015
I spent the first 7 years of my career at Exelixis. It was a great place to learn and grow as a professional. People work hard but also have a good work/life balance. I wish the company nothing but success in the future.

Great group of people to work with. All team players and committted to the cause. Unfortunate results of phase 3 trial for prostate cancer indication is causing huge layoff.

Fun workplace and very nice nice manager.
Okay to contact this Supervisor (Former Employee) –  South San Francisco, CAApril 4, 2014
Very quite typical day of data entry of accounts payables. I learned accounting system of Solomon. The first time I used Outlook. The management is I think one of the nicest I have so far encountered because the Managers are very considerate. I have encountered some of the very helpful co-workers. The hardest but challenging part was when I was trained as a new employee. The most enjoyable part was the printing of payable checks or check run, the photo-copying, and mailing.
Pros
Free lunches, snacks. Good rapport among employees. Weekly pay.
Cons
Healthcare cost is somewhat higher.
