    Knowledge Bound - IST Management Blog

    Cystic fibrosis as a separate and distinct condition was first described by Dr. Dorothy Andersen in 1938. She separated cystic fibrosis from celiac disease and is the one who coined the name "cystic fibrosis." The disease was also called "mucoviscidosis" due to the prevalence of thickened mucous in sufferers of the disease.

    I have been working at IST Management full-time (Less than a year)


    IST has really taken care of their employees. They take seriously vertical growth. Employees that work hard are rewarded with promotions. Wonderful benefits. My husband and I utilized our PTO for our honeymoon.
    Incredible environment as well. Everyone seems to be passionate about their work and the company itself.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at IST Management (San Francisco, CA).


    It was just the standard behavioral interview. They told me about their company and what I would be doing and then asked me questions about my work experience. They did want me to have a car as the job involves some driving between locations.
