Innovative environment
Written by Software developer (Former Employee) from Geneva, Switzerland on November 26, 2018
Work was very independent. As long as you showed you were working and producing interesting results the management didn't interfere with the work. As I was a research assistant i was working closely with the Phd student who had designed the initial software.
