    Pros

    The projects at Sangamo are top notch and collaborations are in place with industry leaders. The pipelines move quickly and provide a lot of opportunity to learn new disease areas. Coworkers are all very helpful and friendly. There is a unified sense of purpose. Management is very accessible. I am able to speak with VPs of many different departments with ease. Supervisors are flexible. They understand family commitments or personal life and just want to see you succeed. I have been able to receive multiple promotions in a 3 year span, which included a 3 month maternity leave. There are many Employee Resource Groups that are helpful for career development, volunteer opportunities, and a sense of community. Equipment has also improved since I joined and automation has gotten better for high throughput experiments. Benefits are great. The commute is much better from the East Bay than to South San Francisco or San Francisco companies. Point Richmond is a nice little downtown area as well.

    Cons

    The stock price could be better.

    Great science but not much else

    Pros

    Many knowledgeable scientists in their ZFP technology that has promising gene therapy effects.

    Cons

    Pays significantly less than South San Francisco companies. Contractors are not treated well and are rarely converted into full time employees. Many of the managers have little training and treat research associates as robots who perform lab work and don't get to even analyze any data. Morale was specifically low and retention was really bad at the company when I left in Dec 2021 as management had become quite manipulative trying to find any reasons not to give people raises.
