I worked at Abcam full-time (more than a year)Pros
Technicians have a huge amount of freedom and this culture makes Abcam's Eugene office an intellectually challenging place to work. The work/life balance is good, but then that should be expected for hourly positions. The 401K contribution is a nice perk. PTO is easy to manage and is reliably given when you want it.Cons
There's very little possibility for advancement. Raises almost never happen, and when they do they're minimal. Compensation is well below the industry average even in the region. Fortunately they're right next to the University of Oregon, so there's a pretty constant stream of new faces as new graduates get experience, but it's a shame they aren't willing to step up to try to keep some of their more talented employees for longer.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied on their website and a recruiter called me a few days later. We went over the position and my experience. The recruiter also mentioned pay and benefits. I was told he would speak to the hiring manager and get back to me. Recruiter then ignored my follow up email to see if I was still being considered a few weeks later after we spoke.Interview Questions
