I worked at Compugen (Canada) full-time (More than a year)
Fast paced, great place to learn a lot quickly! The experience gained at Compugen helped me land my dream job 2 years later.
Work life balance was terrible and it was a very stressful job. Compensation is only so so, certain positions are definitely better than others. Benefits are a joke! No RRSP match and you pay 25% of the premiums for your group health etc. (They didn't tell me that at time of hire). Keep a close eye on your pay stub! Mistakes happened frequently, both under and over paid. Vacation entitlement is also lacking.
Advice to Management
Identify, reward and promote your key contributors: even if they don't reside in Richmond Hill! You might also want to step up compensation & benefits! If you want to attract and retain the best and brightest you need to offer at least as much as the employer up the street.
