As a genomic medicine company, Sangamo Therapeutics works hard to research and develop technology platforms for gene therapy, cell therapy, in vivo genome editing, and in vivo genome regulation. At Sangamo, they take pride in the fact that technology is available to help so many different areas of medicine.
With an optimistic culture and access to the cutting edge of all the new technologies, employees at Sangamo truly have the best of both worlds. But the employees would be nothing if it wasn't for their patients. That's why the biotech experts who make up Sangamo are committed to developing only the best genomic medicines. It's this passion that fuels the company's values:
"It is a collaborative culture, and we're not so small that we're resource-constrained," said Julie Person, Director of Human Resources. The company is constantly building new mechanisms so people feel connected and have all the tools they need to be successful. "We work together seamlessly so that you feel like you're part of one team," she said.
While the company is very focused on work and the patients they serve, the employees do have fun. The company has done a great job of creating a community among employees. The culture is backed by communication and making connections. Once a month they host town-hall meetings so that every employee can understand the strategy and mission of Sangamo while being given the opportunity to ask questions. "This exchange of ideas connects us to our mission and what we're trying to do at Sangamo," said Aron Feingold, Director of Corporate Communications.
This is just one of the ways leadership at Sangamo shows that they're approachable. With an open floor plan, the leadership team really takes the time to get to know employees. "They promote sharing ideas to figure out what's working and what's not working," said Feingold. "Their openness and candor support a culture where employees are encouraged to be human."
Everyone at Sangamo works very hard to reach the big strategic goals that they have in place. But that's not to say that work is their life. The company fosters a culture of flexibility so employees can enjoy their life outside of work. While this is great, it's not the only benefit to the job at Sangamo. In fact, there's a whole list of perks that seems to just go on and on and on. Check it out:
In addition, the company hosts a lot of events outside of work to further strengthen the connections between colleagues. In fact, a lot of the events revolve around eating. They host a Thanksgiving luncheon for the entire company to talk about what they're most thankful for and anything that connects them. The company really spends time investing in doing these types of things. In such a supportive environment, employees even come forward and ask to lead events. Throughout the spring and summer, employees sponsor barbecues often and other colleagues are encouraged to bring their own food contributions. For such a close company, it's easy to see why employees truly enjoy working there.
The company is headquartered in a beautiful building in Brisbane, California overlooking the water. Sangamo also has a manufacturing building in Brisbane and offices in Point Richmond, California. But the company isn't just located in the United States. It's a global company with an office in France and another in the United Kingdom.
The headquarters features big, bright conference rooms that are organized alphabetically and named after 1 or 2 scientists. "This is really inspiring," said Person. "We are a science company first and foremost, and our conference rooms really exemplify that." The office also features a large atrium placed right in the center of the building that is used for their town hall meetings. And, of course, food is a very important thing at Sangamo. So that means the fridge is stuffed with food, the kitchen has a cappuccino machine and every Tuesday employees enjoy a free lunch. It just doesn't get better than that.
