Coordinating (Current Employee) – Southern California – December 7, 2015
This is a great place to get experience, but not necessarily the company to stay with. They are constantly understaffed (and therefore add more work to those already swamped) which can impact the quality of work. If you work hard there are opportunities to advance, but don't expect to be compensated for the amount of work you do- the pay is below industry standard. Lots of promises for help and raises that never come. The focus tends to be more on money than actually helping the volunteers. Get your experience then move on.
Coordinator (Current Employee) – Cypress, CA – October 24, 2015
Prepare to be overworked when it's busy, and tossed under the bus when it's not. The environment here is the worst I have ever seen. Everything they tell you about company culture and team work is a lie. The culture here is not friendly, and teamwork is nonexistent. It is pretty much every man/woman for themselves. Expect to be treading on light water. The moment there is a problem, the blame game arises. You will never ever hear, "We as a team, made a mistake and take full responsibility." They will dig, probe, and search for the wrong doer to clear their name. And as with most companies, hard work is always overlooked. You may do your job right 99.99% of the time, but the moment you make a mistake, the talks and gossips begin. Oh and attitudes of other employees is a huge problem. I've seen the way that some of these people treat others, and it is very unacceptable, grounds for termination, but Human Resources doesn't seem to do anything.
You can get a broad range of experience.
Everything else but experience, company does not treat their employees well. Do not see this as a career, as they do not see your value.

Prepare equipment, have good documentation and being courteous to volunteers/subjects. co-workers will always help you if you have any questions and if they dont have the answer, they will direct you who does know.
Clinical research nurse (Current Employee) – Cypress Ca – August 5, 2015
This place is completely lacking in structure and oranization. The people are nice but management is a joke. They mostly hire on call staff but expect too much from them in terms of availability. The require 3 days a week commitment then they give you your schedule day by day and sometimes put you on and sometimes they don't. It's a good entry level new grad Job to get experience and perfect your lab draws and other skills. If you have any choice go elsewhere for a job because this company isn't worth it
Clinical Support (Current Employee) – One of two sites, CA – December 2, 2015
Gained a lot of experience working at this company. From patient care to the administration side. Besides the amazing coworkers, I felt like I was not going to advance at the company. Lots of empty promises and false hope are given to the employees. Horrible communication with managers. Underpaid for the amount of the workload that is given to you.
Poorly Run Company That Expects Too Much of Inexperienced Employees
Administrative Assistant to Property Manager (Former Employee) – Costa Mesa, CA – August 26, 2013
I did not enjoy working here. Overtime is not allowed but employees are often expected to perform duties completely outside their original job expectations or to change jobs entirely; employees are often moved around with little to no notice; HR office is unreachable and unhelpful; CEO is rude, selfish, and completely money-focused, and would often completely change rules of the office on a whim depending on his mood. He also did not trust his employees at all and did not bother to hide it. There is little to no office rapport except for what go-getting individuals have created amongst themselves. I feel very sorry for those still there with little recourse for a different career. Almost everyone I knew there talked of getting out somehow.
Example: Group holiday parties were cancelled in favor of "team lunches" with the CEO as they were cheaper and less difficult to organize. Individuals who could not attend were left out and no group holiday celebration was allowed in lieu of the lunches.
flexible work hours, new experiences no matter what your position
Laboratory Assistant I (Former Employee) – Cypress, CA – August 20, 2014
Work hours vary significantly from one day normal day hours to working a graveyard shift the next day. Management believes in nepotism. Pay does not compensate for the amount of hours and bs you have to deal with daily. Management also doesn't care about the employees and will throw you under the bus if you make a mistake. Coworkers are pretty friendly and young, which can also be seen as a downside if you're looking for a more professional place to work.
