    I have been working at Ambrx full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I am fortunate to be at a company that sees the value of bringing people together from different backgrounds to work as a team. I have never seen so many minorities and women in positions of senior leadership at other companies. There are limitless opportunities for anyone who works hard and gets things done. Senior management is always willing and ready to take time out of their very busy schedule to listen to the employees and have established a training route so that the a low level research associate to be part of senior management one day.
    Management also provides breakfast, lunch, snacks, and drinks everyday for everyone. Generous salary, benefits, working culture, and best sophisticated research equipment make coming to work fun and motivates me to work harder.

    Cons

    There are some people who were here before the merger and are very uncomfortable now that there are women and minorities in leadership positions. Their passive aggressive behavior need to be dealt with quickly and with a proactive response.

    Advice to Management

    Great job in leading by example and valuing your employees. You have the employees 100% support and best wishes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ambrx.

    Interview

    Chaos - company seemed in transition, small place and they double booked interviews so people were running around and not really devoting time to my interview. Worse part was after devoting an entire day to Ambrx, HR didn't respond to any of my followup emails (general thank you for your time sort of deal, and then a followup about 2 weeks later of status inquire - not even a simple "thanks for your time and were not moving forward" type of thing - lame for a small place but probably an indication of what its like to work there
