Great place to work

Intern (Current Employee)
South San Francisco, CA

ProsGreat company culture with some of the brightest minds in the biotech industry. Over 350 interns in the summer, so it was definitely an experience to remember. Lots of networking opportunities and management/recruiters encourage individuals to apply for a full-time position.

ConsEveryone wants to work here so the salary is non-negotiable. Would have liked an opportunity discuss the pay rate.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work! The executives in this company are very humble and charismatic people.

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