    I have been working at Intrexon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great technology to work with, close team members, variety of projects/programs to keep busy with, strong place to really work with high level professionals, and when you hit or exceed goals, often are recognized and rewarded by management. Promotions, pay increases reflect one's ability to perform.

    Cons

    Many moving parts, deadlines, project shifts sometimes affect performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should consider a yearly call to update employees on how the whole company is operating; it would an effective way of helping us understand our part in making the machine run

    QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Blacksburg, VA
    Anonymous Employee in Blacksburg, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Intrexon in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process consisted of a phone screen, then brought down to Blacksburg for an interview. I rather enjoyed the discussion with the hiring manager, and three other technical guy. At the time, I was told that I'd be the first QA Engineer/Tester they had ever hired. That was a rather exciting idea at the time. The location was a good one. I was rather sold on the position. I felt that my experience and ideas would be valued with Intrexon.

    Reasons for Declining

    After counter offering, I turned down the offer largely due to two reasons. One, benefits seemed to have higher deductibles than I was used to seeing so wanted to find a way to offset that initially. Secondly, while they were offering what appeared to be an opportunity at a reasonable bonus and 'stock options'. The inability to articulate how a tester, the first of his/her kind at their company would be rated for eligibility for said bonus compelled me to turn down the offer when they failed to come up high enough on the base salary.
