"Great place, feels like family"

Oct 8, 2020 - Research Associate II in San Rafael, CA
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO


CEO and upper management that care for their employees. A family-friendly environment that allows you to be home for the holidays (if your work schedule allows). Generous benefits, plenty of company


It can be difficult to move around within the company. The upper management encourages it however the different areas don't necessarily recruit from within and sometimes prefer to take their efforts

Advice to Management

There is a great talent pool within the company. You should really give them a chance before you decide their experience isn't relatable to the job.
