"Great learning experience. Went in with little tangible skills and came out with a boost of confidence in my ability to produce. Laid-back atmosphere with a great group of people to work with. The boss is a really patient guy who gets on your case as long as you do what you're supposed to do (never happened to me). Everyone on the team takes frequent coffee breaks (except me I don't drink coffee). First couple of weeks are overwhelming because the team has weekly meetings where acronyms are thrown around all over the place and you have no idea what's going on. Things slow down after a while though as you learn what they're talking about. Biology knowledge would definitely help your learning curve."
