System Specialist (Former Employee) –  Vacaville, CANovember 3, 2016
A typical at day work supporting the manufacturing floor and providing support to upper management. Coworker’s very friendly and hard working. Most of the management team was friendly and easy to work with. The hardest part of my job was supporting two manufacturing buildings. The enjoyable part of my job was traveling with some of my colleagues.

Decent work place
Principal BI Specialist/Technical Manager (Former Employee) –  South San Francisco, CAOctober 16, 2016
It is a good work place but not much IT focused. Its more a R&D and Bio Pharma Tech company. It has good work culture as well. I would recommend it as a good employer.
