    I worked at Pacific Biosciences full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone was super busy but always willing to help.
    What you need is what you get.
    Management for me was great but not for everyone and was the biggest complaint from most people

    Cons

    Sometimes very unreasonable timelines
    The squeaky wheel gets the oil which is not necessarily a good thing because there are other things that can and should be prioritized

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    at this point, make your people feel like theyre not going to lose there job.
