Great place for scientific research and meeting people.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

ProsMany opportunities to interact smart people with quite different minds. Easy access to both academia and industry connections. Nice campus is a plus.

ConsToo expensive to live at Palo Alto. Will have heavy traffic during football games. No clear road signs for directions to most of the buildings.

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