They do not know how to value employees
Associate (Former Employee) –  Davis, CAOctober 12, 2018
The management is terrible and often in denial about company culture problems. Many people left and they pretend the management had nothing to do with it. The workers who stayed were given a heavier work load while they offer a higher salary to new comers with little experience. Of course, they always low balled the new comers too. You apply for Scientist position and when they offer, they reduce it to Associate. The sad thing is the Associate level is higher than your colleague's who have been working hard and have much more experience than you. So, both old employees and new employees feel undervalue just the same. When people leave, management just chalked it to "the economy," or some reasons that has nothing to do with management's lack of integrity and micromanaging culture.

Avoid this place. So many unhappy people here and not so much progress. Plus they don't pay well at all. Future of this company is uncertain and very disorganized
