A Great Place to Work on Neglected Diseases

Bioinformatics Scientist (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsSeattle Biomed is a place where you can work and believe without any reservations that your efforts are going to make the world a better place. The people who work here are dedicated, helpful, and happy to collaborate; that helps create a very positive research environment. There are plenty of computational resources available as is necessary to apply systems biology to infectious diseases.

ConsThe last few years have been very difficult as far as funding for the sciences. This has strained Seattle Biomed as it has strained every research institution that I'm familiar with. At Seattle Biomed, some labs have left and the administration folks were particularly hard hit.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe formal systems for reviews and feedback is weak. That hurts morale. Even if the funding situation is too tight for raises, it would really help for employees to know how they're doing.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
