I worked at Pacific Biosciences full-time (More than a year)
the culture here is unmatched, the people are awesome, the work environment is relaxed but with a "get things done" attitude. Last but not least, the copious company BBQs hosted throughout the year
Some departments lack support from other departments which hinders processes. Some processes are outdated and could benefit from peer review/input. Since it is somewhat a small company there is not much room for personal career growth.
I applied online. I interviewed at Pacific Biosciences (Menlo Park, CA) in July 2017.
In depth, 3 phone interviews, and in person interview. Overall 1.5 month process. Very in depth which seemed they screened well for potential canidates. I was one of 2 or 3 invited for an in person interview.
In person interview was ALL DAY 9am-2:30 with little to no breaks. Interviewed with 9 or 10 people. Basically all asking the same things. Everyone seemed really nice, some more qualified to interview than others I feel were put in as time fillers.
