    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Polyera full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Technically fun and challenging project. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Management didn't communicate the financial situation until they called for a "mandatory meeting" where they announced massive layoffs. No severance was offered even though they closed their operations in California (dozens of people lost their job).

    Advice to Management

    No advice needed. The little that is leftover from the company is going through a slow, unceremonious death (like the end of life on Earth according to the classic book "The Time Machine" by H.G. Wells).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Polyera.

    Interview

    During the phone screen, they discussed what the company does and the position.

    During the on-site interview, I was interviewed by 6 people then took a tour of the company. They asked a lot of technical questions. Several people drilled me on my basic chemistry and technical aspect of my research.
