Great People, Great "Campus", Laid Back

Web Specialist (Former Employee)
Menlo Park, CA

I worked at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory as a contractor for less than a year

ProsThe people are all awesome and smart, but also fun and quirky. You will learn A TON just from going to lunch with co-workers. The hours are pretty flexible depending on your schedule.

ConsThe traffic can be bad on 280/Sand Hill Road before and after work, and other than the cafeteria there aren't many food options close by unless you drive.

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