    I worked at Brooks Automation as an intern (less than an year)


    Great people! All were friendly and welcoming and willing to teach an inexperienced new person. I didn't meet an engineer I didn't like. Great opportunity to learn for me.


    Sometimes they seemed stuck in the past - much like any company takes a while to change. When I got there they had just upgraded to Windows 7.

    Spoke with five people. It felt like a conversation rather than an interview. I spoke with five people in one at a time, which kept a casual atmosphere. The company has a lot of different groups, and it depends on the department on how the intervews procede.
