Top level research institution filled with amazing people.

Overall, the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) is an amazing place to work. Lee Hood has been a pioneer in biology and has attracted top minds in the field to do cutting edge work. They are literally one of the most prestigious biology research institutions in the world. During my nine years at the ISB, I was fortunate to work with very intelligent, very talented people on a variety of projects.
The culture there represents a good balance between life and work. The atmosphere there is casual, albeit with a high degree of professionalism. People there are motivated to achieve, yet still have time to engage in an atmosphere of mutual learning and support.
Like many academic institutions, they cannot always match industry pay grades, but their benefits package is first rate and atmosphere and mission go a long way to making up for that.
Less than industry grade pay
