Great learning experience for a college student intern

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Menlo Park, CA

ProsI worked as a research intern at PacBio during one of my summers between years of college. I had a great time. This was my first time working in an industrial setting (as opposed to an academic/university lab). The nature of my team's work was very interesting. Though I was an intern, I contributed a lot to the project. Our project was written about in MIT's Technology Review and the New York Times! Through our Friday company meetings, I also learned about what it is like to work at a high growth tech startup that was preparing to go public in Fall 2010.

Great work, great people, great culture.

ConsJust one thing. After they made me the offer, the recruiter hassled me a little bit about why I didn't immediately accept.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work

    I worked at Pacific Biosciences


    Pros: - Smaller company feel - For the most part, open door policy - Food provided (kitchens, sandwich bar, frozen foods, etc),… Cons: - As with any company that grows, more structure is… Advice to Senior Management: - Don't lose the small company feel! - Don't work your people to where things stop being fun. - Lean manufacturing is an ok concept, but don't… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
