A great learning experience and, from an academic standpoint, a way to get your feet wet in industry

Intern (Former Employee) South San Francisco, CA

ProsLarge enough for basic and applied research. The working environment is collaborative (enhances problem-solving), emphasizes team-building, and, if you like it, provides perks. Even though the people who work there are incredibly bright (you may feel dumb), every one is equal. Outside of work, there is emphasis on work-life balance and they provide ways to help make that happen.

Advice to Senior ManagementThanks for having me!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
