    BioSeek, a subsidiary. Good balance of challenges, life quality and pay.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat employees, close knit, friendly, supportive environment at BioSeek. People passionate about their jobs. People stay many years and make a career of working in the biotech industry and BioSeek attracts dedicated people.

    ConsThere are very limited resources for employee training and peer recognition. There are no bonuses and the salary raise does not cover inflation. Vacation time is limited also and the benefits are very expensive for a poor health plan.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Feels like a ship with no clear direction

    Research Associate III (Current Employee) Fremont, CA

    ProsFlexible hours, work is straight forward. Casual environment. Not overly stressful.

    ConsPoor compensation. Lack of growth options. CEO cares more about money than his employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire good management that can guide the employees. Also think about rewarding the work people put in with better raises and bonuses.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLots of things to learn.
    Many brilliant co-workers.
    Interaction with diverse people, from the people in Fremont, to the new BioSeek group, the people down in San Diego and colleagues in Japan and across Europe.

    ConsAlmost no upward movement for nearly all.
    Stagnant career and professional growth.
    Feeling burned out, and seeing many of your colleagues the same way.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAll the employees to grow along with the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It is a good place to get experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Fremont, CA

    ProsThere are some wonderful, dynamic, and passionate people working at this company. It was fun to talk to them l, and to bounce ideas off of them. I got along with most people, and most were willing to help when requested. My colleagues were a pleasure to work with.

    ConsSometimes, management in the department I worked in could be somewhat unorganized. There weren't many opportunities at my time of employment to move up in the company. I felt stuck in my position.
