Great coworkers!
Research Associate (Current Employee) –  Menlo Park, CAJuly 14, 2016
You can come and leave whenever as long as you are finishing up your tasks. Co-workers are awesome people regardless of their inherent personalities. Like any other companies, you will meet people with various personalities, but it all has a balance and harmony.
Pros
Snacks, Pingpong, Long breaks, flexibility
