Incredible Wealth of Knowledge and stimulating Environment

Junior Specialist (Current Employee)
Santa Cruz, CA

ProsCreative and open work environment, where driven individuals can excel and grow considerably.

The bar is set high for your success and there is a competitive atmosphere (at least in our lab).

The people you work with are all quite sharp and push you to do better work.

ConsA very Isolating environment, cooped up in a lab for 12 hours a day 6 days a week takes a special type of person.

The monotony can be endless and is many times rewarded with failure.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
