    I worked at Absorption Systems (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Owners are fully involved in the research and marketing; clear distribution of managing and research lab functions with good interaction; fair workload and good work/life balance; expertise of managers and scientists in DMPK pre-clinical studies ranging from animal dosing to PK data analysis particularly related to cell permeability stages. Good work culture and friendly people ready to help and teach beginners.Good place to start and learn for analytical chemist.

    Cons

    Low compensations for junior stuff (striving to keep competitive prices for clients) as compared to larger pharma/biotech companies results in significant turnover of technical stuff which can use their acquired skills somewhere else for larger money.
    Focus on proprietary approaches and analytical platforms, no thinking out of the box.

    Advice to Management

    Keep technical staff paid competitively to retain qualified people. Don't be a school to prepare specialists for other companies.
    Invest in new fields and directions enough to move things up

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Absorption Systems (San Diego, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    They asked me about my previous experience, education, to tell about myself, my strength and weaknesses, how I put up with pressure etc.. I spoke with five different people that day. Nobody contacted me after that.
