    I worked at Exelixis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only Pro which I can think about is you can learn something about the telecom industry.

    Cons

    Worst management. Money minded managers, where they squeeze the employee but never paid them what they deserve.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Exelixis (South San Francisco, CA (US)) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Their hiring process is fine, although you have to interview with many people and the entire process can take months before you receive a job offer. First you have a couple of telephone screens, then you have a face to face interview with several employees then there may be a follow up telephone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no really difficult questions in my experience.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no opportunity to negotiate as the make it clear that an offer is the best and only one they will make.
