No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Children's Hospital & Research Center at Oakland as an intern (More than a year)

Pros

occasional social events such as BBQ, Ice-cream, and television shows screening (when I was there, they played Sherlock Holmes); research seminars where the company researchers present findings; facilities including a beautiful patio, ping pong table; people are nice

Cons

work can get feel repetitive as a volunteer researcher after a year doing the same procedures and techniques if you do not keep up with the research literature; not enough discussion and enthusiasm between peers over research progress.
