WONDERFUL people and great offices, perks and benefits
I loved working at Kite, but after two years of commuting 4 hours per day, it was time to move on to a new challenge. I made a lot of lifelong friends there and that was the best part.
Kite was a very fast-paced environment to work in but I enjoyed it. Management was the biggest challenge as Gilead purchased Kite in 2018 and it continued to be - more... difficult to merge the two cultures. Many folks left because the culture had shifted to a more "corporate" type from the entrepreneurial spirit everyone had enjoyed for so many years. - less
Prospeople, benefits, 3 weeks vacation to start with and great stock options
