    I have been working at ProteinSimple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Results only work policy provides a very hands-off work environment that allows for a good work-life balance. The culture between management and teammates also fosters a sense of unity as it feels like there is no hierarchy between colleagues.

    Cons

    Results only work policy can be a double edged sword.

    Former Employee - Systems Engineer in San Jose, CA

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at ProteinSimple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    engineers work well together. some guys are more difficult to gain their trust but everyone helps each other out. the team is small and the work has impact to the product.

    Cons

    i started out getting paid $20k less than the average systems engineer. last minute projects and cuts occur frequently.

    Advice to Management

    there needs to more workers per manager. I often felt like I was answering to three different managers at a time, who would assign me work without talking to each other.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at ProteinSimple full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Woerked here for about 3 years, not by choice.

    Cons

    Stressful, no family life. Abusing Managers, Liar Management, extreme corporate 'culture'. Advice to prospective employees is, surely apply & work here if you want to ruin your career and loose peace of mind.

    Advice to Management

    Regret to say but it's useless giving advice to the Deaf 'Management'!
