QuantiFERON Hospital Sales Specialist (Former Employee) – CO – November 27, 2018
This job embodies everything that is terrible about corporate culture. Unachievable sales goals, metric-driven mentality, stressed-out middle management, few opportunities for advancement & no training.

Manager (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – April 24, 2018
The company should go private so they can invest in R&D without having to stretch each quarter to make numbers, which involves cutting people and investment. For how many years will the company continue to make these kinds of mistakes? It's really not encouraging to see this situation persist.
Great company to work at. I get adequate training, support, mentoring from employees and coworkers. The company clearly demonstrate concern for the well-being of their employees, and establish a positive, and cohesive work environment.
Research Associate (Current Employee) – Waltham, MA – March 27, 2017
Working with various research groups to carry out bench top experiments for R&D level work in next generation sequencing technologies. Would assist in weekly planning of experiments, lab management and data processing. Learned and mastered valuable lab and life skills. The most challenging aspect of the position was the inconsistency from week to week and being forced to being an employee that is readily able to adapt and move forward to drive results and meet project goals. The most enjoyable part of the position was the opportunity to start a brand new research project and lab from infancy and seeing a successful product come to fruition.
Account Representative (Current Employee) – Simi Valley, CA – February 9, 2017
My typical work day consist of being on queue to answer any customer questions, shipping details, to create an credit and re-bill for an incorrect invoice. I would also process orders via telephone and or my assigned folder. I also assist my manager with other special projects to clear back logs and reports.
Management overall is not good, most communication is by email with very little development opportunities.
The culture, there is no culture at this company. The team/department morale is actually depressing.
The hardest part about my job is knowing that going above and beyond there's no reward. Hardly recognized.
The most enjoyable about my job now is that I am able to work from home.
The working environment is clean and very light filled. Most of the executives I worked with were very friendly and enjoyable to work with. The hardest part of the job is the constant reorganizing with resulting layoffs which are annually at this point. The most enjoyable part of my job is the friendly people.
