      Incredibly talented, collaborative and well intentioned worker body - just top notch people. Continues to produce high visibility, quality projects. Beautiful campus and history of achievement. Good emphasis on diversity in process today.


      Still calls itself a “family,” it is now a larger company culture where good people are too often left unsupported, labeled, burned out and replaced by a grinder of office politics. Lost some good will as a “forever” place - turnover is way up. Financial ground of industry shifting has left pay behind in the Bay Area, innovation behind agile completion, and unhealthy work-life balance expectations in production.

        - Incredibly talented and capable coworkers - People are genuinely helpful and kind - Great work/life balance - Interesting and fun environment on campus


        - insultingly low pay for the Bay Area - very flat org structure makes it difficult to advance/be promoted - old timers are reluctant to change

      Assistant Director of Education and Training

      Just finished an application to a university that required me to enter all my work experience twice. First under employer history then AGAIN under work history. I am hoping no one else is that persistent or stubborn and I will be the only applicant! Oh, and you had to attach your resume too.

      Hi there, has anyone interviewed with a company called MBI Industrial Medicine that can tell me how the interview process works?
