I have been working at Biometrix full-time (Less than a year)
A lot of the employees were nice.
I was hired and excited to get my feet wet with clinical trials. It was a strange interview process. The first interview was at starbucks. The 2nd interview I went to the office and interviewed for 4 hours because one of the girls wanted me to go through a protocol with her. I wasn't working there yet so why the 4 hours of me analyzing a protocol for them? I was not told what my salary would be until the 2nd day of work. I did not sign any employment forms until the 3rd day. What I discovered the first day was that 3 of their former contract workers had stolen and were holding files hostage because John Ademola withheld pay from them. Police were called to get the files back. The company was horribly disorganized and dirty. I finally pulled one of the contractors aside and asked him for his honest opinion. He told me that John doesn't pay his employees regularly and you never know whether you'll be getting paid. He could also totally see how it got so bad to the point that the contractors felt they had to go to extremes and steal documents. There is no room for promotions and he treats his staff poorly. He told me to get out while i could. My salary was $35,000/year for running clinical trials and the hours I worked while I was there was about 10-11 a day due to confusion and poor organization of work that needed to be done. I had been doing research and UCSF for three years and left my job to do something different. I was told by one of the Biometrix employees who was a former job recruiter that there was no way I would be able to transition into working for private companies because they don't hire basic researchers. On the third day I decided the work was too dysfunctional and literally walked out and told them to keep the hours I had worked as a donation. Decided to take a break from work for 5 months, then took 1 month to land a 70K a year research job at Life Technologies. AVOID this place like the plague!! They need to be shut down.
