Great company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
South San Francisco, CA

ProsThere are great opportunities for anyone who's interested, regardless of your title. The perks, pay, and benefits are also great.

ConsWork/ life balance can be challenging. Also, there could be a better way to share best practices across the organization. Each department operates differently and they could benefit by better integrating best practices.

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