Great people and an engaging work environment.

Research Engineer/Coordinator (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

Pros- Relaxed work environment
- Great advisor and co-workers
- Plenty of learning opportunities
- Plenty of growth opportunities

Cons- Can get boring sometimes
- If academic research isn't for you then you'll crash out quickly
- Academic pay scale leaves a lot to be desired

Advice to Senior Management- Keep up the good work and please do what my advisor did: When someone decides to leave let them stay on until they find another job. Biggest blessing I had.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
