    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Phenomenex full-time (More than a year)


    Folks here work hard and play hard. Very unique corporate culture centered around philanthropy and fun. There is also plenty of opportunity if you are a workaholic to go above and beyond.


    Pay is sub par to industry standards, though "fair" in some respects. Since it's been around for 30+ years, there are a lot of old habits that die hard and these are especially seen through upper management. Politics, especially since it really is "family owned" but every company has them. Company fosters a mentality of putting out fires instead of setting up systems to prevent fires. Growing pains from medium to larger company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people better and start changing!

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Phenomenex (Torrance, CA) in August 2015.


    Two interviews. One with manager and one with the general manager company. overall they were very. We really want to experience day-to-day. Their questions were very specific about I did certain things each and every day
