Okay for a short-term transition out of college

Quantitative Research Analyst (Current Employee)
Burlingame, CA

ProsProvides good programming skills for aspiring health researchers. Some of the best office coffee I've ever had. Work appears to have a very direct impact.

ConsLess than market value salary, so-so benefits, unprofessional and overly-casual work environment, little room for professional growth aside from some very specific programming skills. Office building is drab and provides few lunch options nearby.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to provide more of an introductory background of projects before throwing your employees straight into crunching numbers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
