Large Biotechnology Firm, Thousand Oaks, CA
In 2001 Slicksurface worked on a large intranet project for the Human Resources department at a large biotechnology firm in Thousand Oaks, California. The company is the world's largest biotechnology firm however it has been in existence for only 20 years. The result is a corporate culture which feels like that of a mid-sized company but has a scale of operations more typical of a large, multi-national corporation.
The application that Slicksurface worked on was a 360° performance review survey tool which collected over 40,000 surveys during a 3 week period in December. Given the size of the company's workforce, reliability and performance were of primary concern during development of this tool.
Our past experience in developing software solutions for medical communications companies has resulted in much of our current work being funded by large, pharmaceutical companies, including Bristol-Myers Squibb, ViroPharma, and Wyeth-Ayerst Laboratories. In addition, Jay Harper and Dan Wong have previously worked on numerous projects for GlaxoSmithKline, Abbott Laboratories, Pfizer, and Ortho-McNeil.
