What happened?

Scientist II (Former Employee)
South San Francisco, CA

ProsGood work atmosphere, very friendly and sincere people. It was a fun place to work, along with a good network building opportunity. Good pay and great benefits. You could tell that Management cared about its employees, even during the last few months.

ConsDidn't like the friction between certain R&D groups, could sometimes be distracting. Very saddening to see the way things turned out.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdjust planning and expectations accordingly with tangible progress.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
