I just interviewed at The Broad Institute last week.
I cannot believe how completely and utterly full of themselves they seem to be. There were a few nice people, but most of the people I talked to were incredibly arrogant.
And, looking at their resumes, a lot of them have very little reason for that arrogance. One person, a big deal in the chemical biology division (but hardly a big name) took the cake. After talking, I started to wonder what this person had done to have their head expand to fill the room. I looked them up and basically the answer seems to be work at a semi-failed biotech and then feed off the trough at The Broad Institute.
It looks like I will be getting an offer. To anyone who has worked there, am I off base here? Did I just get a bad sample set?
