I worked at InterMunePros
Great range of people (it takes all kinds)
After a regulatory glitch a few years back, new mgmt was brought in and almost everyone with bad habits was flushed out
Mgmt has a knack for picking people they know will work well in their groups
Great morale programs (recognition, feedback, events, outings)
Great benefits & options (even pet health insurance if you want to shell out for it)
Nice enough location: close to the city, but don't have to hassle with parking issues; overlooks a hill where horses roam, as well as the bay
Free breakfast cereal, frozen yogurt, subsidized vending machines, not afraid of drinking at social eventsCons
