Xeno bio is currently suicicde due to the fact that just siting in the middle of the room will mean the slimes will start coming for you. Most of the time walking into xeno and getting monkey cubes out results in cells broken out of and being in critical on the floor surrounded by 2 grey slimes. When a slime splits the slimes are immediately hostile not caring what state the original slime was and often start attacking each other as a split almost always results in new colors. I’m considering applying for slime person just to make my life easier due to the hell that xeno bio is to just walk into.

The hazardous nature of the job is part of the fun, and you can pretty easily work around it.

March straight in, hammer the button to drop the blast doors immediately, then walk right out of xenobio. They'll stop hitting the windows/doors. Grab the xeno tazer and open them one at a time and bring them to tame. Only then should you try feeding them.

Xenobio on Polaris is a very... agressive job. Here is some general advise for it.
You will have to taze slimes.
You will need to deploy slimessky.
You are required to manage doors.
Ideally, you even know how to repair cracked windows before they break.
Shout at your slimes to follow you to find out how dangerous they are to transfer cells.
And ignore the xeno-baton. The slimes attack faster then you can, ask for some more slimeskies from robotics and security.
Keep your gun loaded. Maybe even juggle the two and have on in the charger at all times.
Fire extinguishers, they are your friend.
Water grenades are a thing, in the worst case.

Polaris Xenobio is either a slow job or a dangerous job, and all in all rewards reaction speed.
PS: If the lights start to flicker, it is probably saver to go take a break elsewhere.

When you're feeding them and expecting them to split, have a tazer in hand and ready. They will take less tazes than the initial taming process. Hit all the slimes with a shot. Do not panic if they start attacking each other, at worst they will kill one or two of the other-coloured ones, which while frustrating, is better than getting killed yourself.
