I worked at Fluidigm (Less than a year)
-Opportunity to work with talented scientists -I felt privileged to work with cutting edge technology -I learned lab techniques that are in demand in my field -Most people are friendly and helpful
-Poor planning at times; things were often unnecessarily rushed -The R&D labs are in need of a manager- there is a lot of inefficient and probably unnecessary spending there

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fluidigm (South San Francisco, CA).
30-minute interview with the hiring manager (Senior Scientist) and a co-worker. Mostly behavioral questions along with some questions to gauge my interest in microfluidics and single-cell genomics. Followed by a 30-minute interview with the group leader. Most questions were technical. This was followed by a 15-minute chat with an HR person which was more informal. About 10 days after the on-site interview I had a phone interview with another Senior Scientist who worked closely with the hiring manager. Very standard questions were asked, mostly about my technical background.
