    Pros

    Great relationships with vendors, great purchasing dept. Prototype equipment readily available for development. Not as much red tape as other automated equipment companies.

    Cons

    Unreal deadlines, high expectations with mid level input, and low level managing with high level expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Develop aptitude for letting contractors go, as contractors breathe the same air you do. 20 minute notice on a Friday morning is a pretty low level DB manager move.

    Interview

    The company is a spin off from Symyx. Many employees are transferred. The process is generally OK. You do a presentation to people and some tough questions. Requirements for high throughput technology or automation is required.
    The pay is a little bit low but close to average in bay area.
