how we work

We are passionate about saving and improving the lives of patients, and how we get things done reflects that commitment. If someone asked our team “what is it like to work at Sesen Bio?”, they would hear about the 10 leadership behaviors that we practice here. These principles guide our interactions, define our culture, and illustrate who we are and how we operate. We interviewed some of our colleagues, and they were happy to share more about each behavior.

leadership behaviors at Sesen Bio


"I’ve worked for institutional-like companies and start-ups before, and I’ve never seen this type of energy around leadership behaviors. At Sesen Bio, our 10 leadership behaviors are an integral part of how we do business and how we measure our performance."

earn and build trust

constructively resolve conflict


"Conflicts are addressed with an objective process that focuses not on finding fault or assigning blame, but rather on identifying the source of a problem. Personal conficts don’t happen often; but when they do, a healthy debate uncovers different views, and we work together to find the best path forward."
